Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack at about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the goat cheese, lemon pepper and salt. Pat this evenly over the tops of the halibut steaks. Place the steaks on a baking sheet. Pinch off tiny pieces of butter and place them on top of the cheese coating, using about 1 tablespoon per steak.
  3. Broil for 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness of your steaks. You will know they are done when the cheese is browned and the fish can be flaked with a fork.
  4. While the fish is cooking, combine the remaining butter, lemon juice, cream cheese, milk and chives in a small saucepan. Cook while stirring over low heat until everything is melted and smooth. Spoon sauce onto dinner plates and place the halibut steaks on top to serve.

Substituted orange roughy for the halibut because that's what I had, but the crust and sauce both were excellent! A little heavy on the lemon pepper in the crust for my liking, but my beau loved it as is.

Bleck! I love goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon pepper, etc... This recipe was not good :( My husband and I started laughing as we realized we were both trying to choke down the fish with a straight face. If you insist on cooking this, reduce lemon pepper! Way too much.

I was hesitant that the halibut might be a little bland because there was no marinade. But, I was wrong. Because of some of the other reviewers, I omitted the lemon pepper and mixed the goat cheese with lemon juice and kosher salt and cracked black pepper. I added just a bit of balsamic vinaigrette in the bottom of the pan for a little extra flavor and it was awesome. Although, I think it would have been fabulous without it as well. Some of the other reviewers didn't make the cream cheese sauce, but, it really is a must. Thanks for this recipe! Coming from Alaska, where Halibut if abundant, we are always looking for great new Halibut recipes and this is a keeper!

YUM!! Absolutely delicious. My husband made this, and I forgot I was at home and not at a favorite restaurant. Next time, we'll add some almonds to the top just for a little texture. Other than that, won't change a thing.

This sophisticated recipe is a real party pleaser. The sauce is perfectly paired with the flavor of the crust... but it doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the halibut (which is rare for most recipes). It tastes best when the lemon pepper is reduced to 1 1/2-2 tsp in my opinion... but wow!!!!!!!!

Since there was already so much dairy in the crust, I decided to skip making the sauce, and just serve the fish and crust together. The result was ok - a little heavy on the lemon pepper, but not too bad. I think the sauce must be important, though, to deserve the praise of the other reviewers.

My husband just made this for me for Valentines day and I thought I was in a gourmet restaurant. It was so wonderful. The flovors blend so well together and the presentation is is just beautiful!! The flavor of the halibut is able to come through. Love it!!
