This recipe keeps halibut moist beyond belief! The sauce is delightfully rich, but not overpowering, with just a slight kick to it.

This was unlike any fish I've either eaten or prepared, and I was interested to try something that seemed different. That, and having all the ingredients on hand, led me to this recipe. I seasoned the filets with salt, pepper and garlic powder before I spread the topping, then sprinkled on some paprika for color. Wow -both my husband and I really enjoyed it! Moist, flaky fish, with a rich, creamy topping that looked very attractive on the plate, especially with a sprinkle of finely chopped fresh parsley just before serving. Also a plus was that I was able to assemble this ahead of time and just pop it into the oven when I was ready to have dinner. I know this will not be the last appearance of this dish at our house! Thanks for the unique recipe! Read More

This was a "very" bland recipe. DH thought it was okay but definitely needed to be "spiced" up considerably. Will probably make again but with different seasonings. It also took almost 40 minutes to bake. Read More

I tried this recipe last night and my husband is still raving about it. I thought it was very good also; defintely worthy of anything found in a restaurant. The halibut was very moist and perfectly done. I did embellish as I almost always do. I used parmesean (lower fat) low fat mayo & sour cream added 1 tsp lemon zest 1/2 tsp fish rub 1/2 tsp dill weed and fresh ground pepper. I don't doubt it would have been just as good as posted without these additions; I just can't resist "messing with" recipes. Also I baked it over fresh spinach (from another similar recipe). This was our vege accompaniment along with a side of mashed potatoes. My husband usually does not touch anything with sauce; he was delighted with this dish. He can't wait for me to serve it again!

This was one of the better recipes for halibut I have had. I made a few substitutions and additions. I used half cheddar and half fresh parmesan cheese Used garlic instead of onion and added dried dill. I added the lemon juice cayenne and dill to taste. Over all it was very good and would recommend to any who like halibut. Read More
