"This fish will just melt in your mouth! I like to serve over a quinoa-kale salad. Also, please don't use regular bread crumbs as they are too dense."

We were at 4 1/2 with this lovely dish, mostly because we wanted just a touch more flavor to it----maybe a sprinkling of an herb medley (like Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute) or a little garlic flavor to the butter or the lemon juice. The panko topping was perfect. At first I thought there wasn't enough butter to cover the 1/2 cup, but it turned out great. We very much enjoyed our dinner! Thanks, Lindsey!

Not bad, but not a "make again" I'm afraid. First of all, I wish I would have used less bread crumbs - like half as much. Also, I added fresh minced garlic and parsley to the bread crumbs, which this sorely needed. This wonderful, beautiful, white, flaky fish was just simply on the crumby (pun intended), ho-hum side. Serving this with Melody's Corn Maque Choux, also from this site, perked it up significantly.

Tried this recipe and thought it was really good. But, if you're making it for a family with young kids, go a little easy on the mustard. THe recipe says to use a "thick" layer of dijon mustard...which I did....but it ended up being too spicy for my kids. I think if I would have used a thinner layer they would have liked it a lot better. My husband and I liked it as is, but I think we would have liked it just a well a little less spicy.

The halibut was wonderful. Tastey and perfectly baked.

Very good, easy to prepare, the dijon mustard added a nice little extra zip. Will use a bit more lemon next time

This was a decent baked halibut recipe. I liked the Dijon mustard - it added kick to the fish. Didn't really have to use anything else for the fish because it had enough flavor. I did add extra seasoning to the Panko crumbs...a basic seafood season. I would repeat this one again.
