This recipe makes a very moist halibut main dish. I have a recipe for another 'Oven Fried Buttermilk' using chicken, and, as I like to experiment, I decided to try it with halibut. The only changes I made were the main ingredient and the oven temperature.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Set a large resealable plastic bag in a bowl. Pour in the buttermilk and salt. Add the halibut fillets and close the bag. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.

  • Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  • Place half of the crackers and half of the Greek seasoning into a blender. Cover and pulse until they become fine crumbs. Pour into a shallow bowl, and repeat with remaining crackers and Greek seasoning. Whisk eggs with water in a separate bowl.

  • Remove halibut from the bag and discard the marinade. Dip fish into the egg and then in the crumbs until evenly coated. Place coated fillets into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish. Do not let them touch, as they will weld themselves together. Drizzle the butter on top of the fish.

  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, about 45 minutes.

The recipe proportions are a little off for me. I think that there is too much buttermilk egg and butter for the recipe. However I made it for two. We had about 4 ounces of halibut each. I used about 2/3 cup of buttermilk and only one egg. I used about a teaspoon of melted butter for each fillet and if I weren't watching my health I would have used more but 1 teaspoon each was enough. I used Triscut Rye/Caraway crackers. I wasn't sure that the caraway would be a good mix for the fish. Oh my goodness....my first bite I thought wow this would be great on chicken and then I had another bite and I have to say the flavors really meshed for us. I will be using this basics of this recipe for many other recipes for both fish and chicken. Thanks!!!! Plain Ole Bob and Thank you for your service too Sir! Read More

I too like to experiment and my husband has the one taste bud he is guarding so I changed the seasoning to Tony's Creole seasoning the crackers to saltines and used chicken thighs as the meat. It was easy and my husband loved it. Finally! He gave a thumbs up on my chicken. Thank you! Read More

Everyone in the family including my five year old grandson ate and ate until there was no more. They all agreed that although it was saltier than we would have liked it was the best fish recipe ever. I used Triscuit rye crackers and followed the recipe exactly. Next time though I'll try using a less expensive fish of similar density. Read More
