This was great! I used fat free mayo and extra virgin olive oil in place of the butter and it was delicious and healthy. Thanks for the great recipe!


This recipe is FANTASTIC! However, I would recommend using only 1 tsp. of the Dijon mustard- not 1 tbsp. The flavor of the Dijon mustard can be overpowering, potentially masking the flavor of the halibut. Also, make sure you cook it at a higher temperature. Otherwise, the breadcrumb-crusted fish will be a bit soggy at the bottom. However, if you use high heat, this will quickly evaporate all of the water that naturally comes out of the fish when baked. Other than that, this recipe has a GREAT flavor. The Parmesan adds a great flavor. I served it as a fish sandwich with aioli on the side. Delicious!!!


Given comments that the fish needed more cooking time, wasn't crunchy or didn't get brown, I made a couple of small changes to correct. I raised the oven temperature to 400 degrees, put the pan on the upper third of the oven, and baked the filets about 20 minutes. Also, I drizzled the fish with about 2 T. of extra melted butter, letting some of it flow onto the pan. These small changes made the coating crisp and golden brown and the fish perfectly cooked. While this is not my favorite way to prepare halibut, it was an interesting change. I won't be making this again, however, as hubby didn't like it at all (in fact, his ended up in the garbage can). He thought the topping too heavy and overpowering for this delicately flavored fish, preferring it more simply prepared. I have to agree.
