So Jenn was over one weekend and I decided to cook for her (as is kind of the point of this blog). She obviously gets the better end of this deal now that I think about it. She is always wanting to eat healthier and encouraging me to do the same. I oblige as much as I can, but c’mon, you can’t not eat ribs, burgers, fries, steak, pizza, dessert, etc if they’re in front of you. And let’s be honest, I make it a point to put them in front of me. So, I had a few vegetables in my fridge and in order to be healthy, I decided to make fish. But me being me and wanting to make it nice and do this “chivalrous” thing for the gf, I went out and got halibut (Costco really does have good deals). I basically had everything else in my pantry, so it worked out great. I loosely followed a recipe by For the Love of Cooking. All in all, it turned out pretty dang good, crispy and flaky, the way it was supposed to be. Try it out and let me know what you think!
- halibut filets, no skin
- 1/2-3/4 cup panko crumbs
- 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped (or dried I suppose)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- lemon juice (maybe 1/2 a medium lemon)
- olive oil
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, wash and pat dry the halibut
- On a plate, combine the panko, parmesan, parsley, and garlic powder
- Brush both sides of the halibut with olive oil, and squeeze some lemon juice on them
- Season the halibut with salt and pepper
- Dip and coat the halibut with the panko mixture
- Place the halibut on a cooking/baking rack and spray with cooking oil
- Bake for ~15 minutes
- Let sit for ~1-2 minutes, garnish with some chopped parsley and enjoy!
This looks delicious!
