  • Season the halibut with garlic powder, salt, and pepper; cook in microwave until slightly cooked, about 2 minutes. Mix together the green onion, bell pepper, cilantro, sour cream, mayonnaise and 1 cup Cheddar cheese in a bowl. Gently fold the halibut into the mixture.

  • Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Pour 1/2 of a can of enchilada sauce into the bottom of the baking dish.

  • Pour 1 can of enchilada sauce into a bowl. Dip the tortillas, one at a time, into the sauce to lightly coat. Spoon the halibut in equal portions into the center of each tortilla. Make the enchiladas by tightly rolling the tortillas and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over top of the enchiladas. Sprinkle with 1 cup Cheddar cheese. Cover the dish with aluminum foil

  • Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Top with avocado slices to serve.

I love this recipe, I have personally made it at least a dozen times and have given it to many of my friends to try. However I havent tryed changing the recipe or altering it in any way. I dont think that you could judge a recipe poorly because you made the mistake of changing it and it didnt turn out well. Read More

This is a very good recipe I would surely make it again.. however I think I will use real onion as well as green.. and you don't need to mico the fish ahead of time. 45 minutes was more than enough for my fish to cook all the way through. Read More

I love this recipe. I have followed the recipe exactly and I have also altered it. Don't have fish that's ok...add some spinach and corn instead and you have a wonderful veggy enchilada. I've even made it as a casserole dish for my son's 1st birthday party to save time on rolling. I made them without fish even and got rave reviews. Thanks for such a wonderful and diverse recipe!

To be honest I wasn t sure how the dish is going to turn out. So I wasn t expecting much. I was VERY surprised to find out how delicious the enchiladas are! I microwaved orange roughy with garlic salt and lemon pepper. Also I used about half the amount of enchilada sauce because I didn t want them to be too spicy for my mom. Served enchiladas with store made guacamole since avocados didn t look too promising at the store. Read More

Really good recipe! My microwave is the slowest oldest machine in existance so I just did the precooking step on the stovestop. I left out the cheese because I figured it would be creamy and yummy enough with the sour cream and avocado and so I might as well ditch the excessive calories (not that I have anything against cheese it was a whim!). I was also too lazy to make rolled enchiladas so I layered the tortillas and fish "New Mexican style" but to be honest I think this recipe would have been much better if I had taken the time to roll them so next time I will. Cilantro and lime on top of the finished product makes it perfect! Thanks! Read More
