Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, dill, parsley, chives, paprika, lemon juice, lemon zest, and garlic.
Arrange the halibut fillets in a stoneware baking dish, with space between them. Use paper towels to pat them dry.
Brush the fish on both sides with the olive oil mixture. Season both sides with sea salt and black pepper. (You can also mix the salt and pepper into the olive oil mixture before brushing, but they disperse more evenly if you sprinkle separately.)
Bake for 8-15 minutes (depending on thickness), until the halibut internal temperature reaches your desired doneness: 125 degrees F (52 degrees C) for medium rare, 130 degrees F (54 degrees C) for medium, or 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for well done. I recommend medium for the most tender, moist, and flaky fish. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can check that the fish flakes easily with a fork, but is still moist and tender inside.
