The green onions and parmesan definitely gave this halibut a very nice pleasing flavor but there really was no point to adding the dried dill. Dill has little or no flavor after being cooked for that long a period of time and especially so when using dried dill. I suggest using two or three pinches of chopped fresh dill weed instead. Also, a word of caution about placing a baking dish under a broiler and especially if it's Pyrex brand because they often cannot withstand that high of heat and will shatter even if it had already been at oven temperatures. I learned that first hand and felt like a fool when reading the bottom of my other Pyrex baking dish afterwards; "No Stove Top - No Broiler". It took not only losing a baking dish but also all the yummy food that was in it :-( ********** I am adding an answer to RckyMtnGirl's question of how someone could have originally rated this recipe on March 3rd but she didn't see the recipe posted until March 6th. Well, it was originally posted early Saturday morning of the 3rd and I tried it that afternoon ;-)

We didn't care for this at all. The sour cream mixture got weird and separated when it cooked and just looked unappealing. I followed the recipe exactly and also didn't care for the flavor combinations. I won't be making this again.

Okay so Halibut is hard to find right now so I subbed cod. Also after reading the reminder that Pyrex should not be broiled I decided to just add the parm right into the sauce and not broil it at all. I also added more dill. It was amazing. So good that I am making it again tonight and will add afew scallops to try. Thank you for sharing your friend's recipe. I am sorry for your loss and will always make this in her honor. Here's to Chele!

how does someone rate this recipe when it was just posted brand new today, 3/6/12? i don't understand. the recipe sounds wonderful! i can't wait to try it.

Awesome! Will make again. P.S., One reviewer said there was no point in using dried dill? You could definitely taste it. In fact, it was a definining flavor of the dish.

I dont cook, so when I do, my guy gets a worried look on his face. No worries here, he LOVED IT!!!

I was in a hurry so didn't measure anything. Substituted plain yogurt for sour cream and only broiled until cheese was melted, not browned (because, again, I was in a hurry!). Anyway, it had a nice flavour with the green onions and parmesan. Our family loved it!

Just delicious. My garden club asked me for the recipe after I made a modified version for them. I used Tilapia, substituted 3/4 cup of lowfat sour cream, and added 1 rounded tablespoon of mayonnaise. I had sweet onion so I used that instead of green, and once it was cooked i sprinkled seasoned Panko breadcrumbs on top, then Parmesan after, and put it under the broiler to brown. OUTSTANDING!
