I am a pretty inexperienced cook & have always been a bit intimidated with trying to "bread" things. This was simple, quick, and the fish was so tasty! It's a basic start, easy to embelish.

Quick to make, delicious to eat. Take care not to over cook the fish.

Really liked this recipe. At first I thought It was a joke because I don't usually fry fish in olive oil nor use flour for batter, but it worked! Really outstanding. Using 1/2 the flour with ...

This is delicious and so quick to prepare! I have never been a big fan of halibut but this recipe changed my mind. Funny I have never thought to combine Old Bay and hers de Provence before, they...

The whole family LOVED this recipe. The best halibut since our visit to Alaska a couple of years ago. There was a lot of extra flour mixture left over. Next time I will use half the flour and...

I drastically over cooked mine (my fault NOT the fault of the recipe) however; the flavors were still very good. will make again....and watch my cooking times better :D

I haven't much experience cooking fish, but this recipe, with a couple of modifications, was excellent. I used a gluten free flour, Bragg's seasoning, and cooked it in coconut oil. Loved it!
