"This recipe keeps halibut moist beyond belief! The sauce is delightfully rich, but not overpowering, with just a slight kick to it."

shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground cayenne pepper
This was unlike any fish I've either eaten or prepared, and I was interested to try something that seemed different. That, and having all the ingredients on hand, led me to this recipe. I seasoned the filets with salt, pepper and garlic powder before I spread the topping, then sprinkled on some paprika for color. Wow -both my husband and I really enjoyed it! Moist, flaky fish, with a rich, creamy topping that looked very attractive on the plate, especially with a sprinkle of finely chopped fresh parsley just before serving. Also a plus was that I was able to assemble this ahead of time and just pop it into the oven when I was ready to have dinner. I know this will not be the last appearance of this dish at our house! Thanks for the unique recipe!
This was a "very" bland recipe. DH thought it was okay but definitely needed to be "spiced" up considerably. Will probably make again but with different seasonings. It also took almost 40 minutes to bake.
I tried this recipe last night, and my husband is still raving about it. I thought it was very good, also; defintely worthy of anything found in a restaurant. The halibut was very moist and perfectly done. I did embellish, as I almost always do. I used parmesean (lower fat), low fat mayo & sour cream, added 1 tsp lemon zest,1/2 tsp fish rub,1/2 tsp dill weed, and fresh ground pepper. I don't doubt it would have been just as good as posted without these additions; I just can't resist "messing with" recipes. Also, I baked it over fresh spinach (from another similar recipe). This was our vege accompaniment, along with a side of mashed potatoes.
My husband usually does not touch anything with sauce; he was delighted with this dish. He can't wait for me to serve it again!
This was one of the better recipes for halibut I have had. I made a few substitutions and additions. I used half cheddar and half fresh parmesan cheese, Used garlic instead of onion, and added dried dill. I added the lemon juice, cayenne, and dill to taste. Over all it was very good and would recommend to any who like halibut.
I made this with chicken and it was great!
Our family LOVES this recipe!! I use Parmesan Cheese and mix it in the mixture and then sprinkle some extra on top.
This is a great recipie. My whole famly enjoyed it right down to my picky 4 year old. I even used milk instead of the sour cream for a creamy mix and then I didnt have to take the "troops" all to the store for missing ingredients. We will definatly be making this one often!!
We eat a lot of halibut at my house. I thought this recioe was pretty good just a little rich though. The wife and kids loved it and said they would eat it again and again. I followed the recipe with no subs.
