Mild tasting halibut with a flavorful topping.
Parmesan Baked Halibut
Parmesan and butter combine to give the halibut a rich flavor like no other.
- 2 pieces halibut about 5 to 6 ounces each
- salt and pepper to taste kosher salt works best
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tbsp. butter softened
- 1 1/2 tbsp. mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. key lime juice or lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. dried dill or 1 tsp. fresh chopped
- 1/4 tsp. hot sauce
Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly salt and pepper the halibut pieces and place in a greased bake pan. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes.
While the halibut is baking, mix the parmesan cheese in a bowl with the butter, mayonnaise, lime juice, dill, and hot sauce. Remove the halibut from the oven, turn the pieces over and top with the parmesan mixture. Set the oven to broil, and broil the halibut for approx. 5 minutes or until the topping bubbles and is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
This halibut recipe goes great with a side of coleslaw and red potatoes in foil. I haven't tried this recipe with any other fish but I would think it should work well with any mild fish such as haddock or cod.
Did you know: According to the International Game Fishing Association the current record catch is 459 pounds for Pacific halibut (Alaska, 1996) and 418 pounds for Atlantic halibut (Norway, 2004). That's a lot of fillets.
