Mix spice rub by combining, 1 tsp of the cumin and then coriander, paprika, salt, pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and thyme.
Rub the spice mix on the halibut and let it marinade as you prepare the rest of dinner.

Lay beans and tomatoes on a lined baking sheet and put in the oven for 15 minutes. Turning them once halfway through.
Meanwhile, make the yogurt sauce by adding avocado, yogurt, lime juice and zest, cilantro, 1/4 tsp cumin, garlic and olive oil in a food processor. When smooth, taste and season with salt and pepper. If too tart, add a pinch of white sugar. Set aside.
If beans are done, remove and tent them to keep warm.
Reduce the oven to 350 in preparation for the fish.

When fish seared, add to lined baking sheet and bake for another 4-7 minutes (depending on thickness). Fish is cooked through if it easily flakes apart with a fork.
