"Creamy, spicy sauce-covered halibut fillets. Goes good with potato salad and green beans, or try it with rice and a green salad. Covers that fishy taste that accompanies some fish. Very good!"

skinless halibut fillets
lemon pepper to taste
This was scrumptious - I grew up in Alaska and have eaten halibut cooked many, many ways - so I truly enjoyed the flavors.
Changes I made are:
Used 1/3 cup of each 3/4 cup ingredient. Grated fresh lemon zest and sprinked cracked pepper on halibut instead of lemon pepper. For the salsa, I used some leftover homemade tomatilla salsa...wonderful - can't wait to make it again.
Neither hubs nor I enjoyed this. The topping is rather flavorless, and serves only to keep the fish kind of "wet." A sauce should enhance the food it accompanies, not dominate or bury it. Some ideas to improve this would be to bake, grill or broil the fish separately, then serve the sauce on the side. As for the sauce itself, it needs some flavor additions - chile powder, jalapeno or bell peppers maybe?
Really enjoyed this recipe. Have lots of Halibut from an Alaskian fishing trip and tired of the traditional way of cooking fish. I will be making this again only I think I may use just the cracked pepper instead of the lemon pepper or maybe cut down on the lemon pepper.
Used orange roughy. Per other suggestions I changed everything that was 3/4 to 1/3 and the amount of sauce was perfect! No garlic oil so I substituted about 2 cloves of minced garlic. FH and picky teen devoured it! It is a keeper. TY for the recipe!
great recipe! We added about 1/2 cup of cheese and once it was cooked, it was great over fettucini noodles :) I think we might add some crab meat to it next time.
Yum! Would be good with chicken too. Makes a lot of sauce, so you could cut down on the sauce, or add more fish or chicken. I think the sauce served cold would make a good dip.
I agree with Naples 34102. There were some problems with this recipe - nothing exciting about, generally. The only positive thing that I can say about this recipe was that the fish was moist. I may try this recipe again with some changes, as my husband seemed to like it. Suggestions: I would suggest reducing the general amount of marinade/sauce mixture, as it thinned out considerably when it cooked, and didn't seem to reconstitute, even with resting. It seemed to work better as a 'leftovers' dish. I added some roasted garlic, onions and julienned red bell peppers. Next time, I would also leave out the butter, as the recipe seemed to call for an awful lot of it, and it didn't seem to really help the overall outcome. I would also suggest using this as a marinade, rather than a sauce. The next time I make this, I am going to try it 'en papiotte'. I am hoping that the next time, this will be a more successful dish. I am willing to give it another try.
Recipe was quite good. It had a little bit of fishy taste, but my dad and son loved it.
