For the Halibut Burger

  • 2 fresh Halibut fillets
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Heinen’s brioche hamburger buns
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • Vigeo Gardens microgreens, for topping

For the Green Goddess Sauce

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Make the Green Goddess sauce. Combine the Greek yogurt, cilantro, lime juice, salt and garlic powder in a food processor. Process until smooth, then refrigerate.
  2. Pat the halibut fillets dry, then season both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and halibut fillets. Sear for 4 minutes per side, until the fish is golden brown.
  3. Remove the halibut from the pan, then toast Heinen’s brioche hamburger bugs for one minute.
  4. Add a spoonful of the sauce to both buns. Add the seared halibut, cilantro, avocado slices and microgreens to the bottom bun. Top with the remaining bun and serve.
