Baked Halibut Fillets

  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs Halibut Fillet
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups Red and Green Sweet Peppers, sliced
  • 1 to 1 1/2 Tbsp Garlic, chopped
  • Plum Tomatoes, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp Seasoned Salt
  • Black Pepper, to taste
  • Bread Crumbs
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup Parsley Leaves, chopped
  • Fresh Lemon Juice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 °F degrees and cut fish into six portions. Coat bottom of oven-proof baking dish with olive oil and layer with the onion and pepper slices. Add the crushed garlic. Roll the fish in olive oil, coating well on all sides. Place on top the vegetables and shingle with the tomato slices. Season with desired spices - I like black pepper, a dash or three of seasoned salt and some dried basil.

Place the fish in the oven and bake until it just begins to flake - some 6 - 8 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle well with seasoned bread crumbs and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Turn oven up to broil and return dish to oven. Broil until the cheese and bread crumbs are golden brown and crunchy. Watch closely and don't burn. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over baked halibut, sprinkle on the parsley, and serve immediately. I like this fish with a rice dish such as Creole rice.
