Dynamite Halibut

Rated as 4.7 out of 5 Stars

"I created this recipe because my family just loves the dynamite dishes served in sushi restaurants. It's a hit for all ages! This would even be great on top of chicken breasts! Serve atop of sushi rice and a side of steamed broccoli. Garnish with a lemon wedge."

I'll admit I am not a fish person. This recipe was OK. I wouldn't make it again. I wouldn't buy halibut again.
