  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  2. We cut our large halibut fillet into two servings, then pat it dry and seasoned with salt and pepper.
  3. Place two pieces of parchment paper or foil side by side on a baking sheet. Place one slice of fish in the center of each sheet. 
  4. Top with swiss chard, tomato, and onions. Drizzle with olive oil and top with the cubed butter.
  5. Fold up the packet over the fish and vegetables and fold the edges to seal in all of the delicious ingredients.
  6. When the oven is heated, bake for 20 minutes. The halibut is ready when it's just opaque, and will continue to cook for a few minutes while it rests after you remove it from the oven. 
  7. To serve, open each packet and move to a plate. Top with fresh basil and a squeeze of lemon.
