  1. Heat your oven to 425 degrees F. Place the halibut on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, and season it with salt and black pepper. Bake until the fish is just opaque in the center, about 10-12 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook it until it's soft and darkened, about 7 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and heat for another minute. Place the squash, broth, thyme, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper into a pot, and simmer for 1 minute. Combine everything in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Divide the squash sauce among serving plates, and nestle the fish into the sauce. Garnish with pumpkin seeds.
