Kelli's Baked Halibut

Kelli's Baked Halibut


"A wonderful recipe my mother used to use when I was a kid. A crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside recipe. Also works great for ling cod, snapper, or other white fish. Enjoy your halibut with what my sisters and I used to call 'pink sauce' (Miracle Whip and ketchup mixed together), a fresh spinach salad and toasted French bread."

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Rinse fish fillets with water, and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the cracker crumbs, garlic salt, pepper and seasoning salt. Set aside. Coat the fish fillets with flour, shaking off the excess, and place in a baking dish. Coat the tops of the fillets with salad dressing, then press on a layer of seasoned cracker crumbs. Flip over, and repeat on the other side.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until fish is white and flakes easily with a fork.

As a fisherman's daughter and native Alaskan, I found this to be a great recipe. We bake halibut often with mayo and love it, but the crumbs addedd a nice touch. I also added lemon pepper and pa...

This recipe is really good! Creative & simple too! I can't stand miracle whip so I used 1/4c. real mayo and 1/4c. tartar sauce which worked out nice. I over salted it because I forgot that the s...

This recipe is very good and super easy to make. My one suggestion is to make sure the crackers are crushed very fine.

Great taste AND easy to make. I used half honey mustard, half horseradish sauce instead of miracle whip, and let the fillets sit in the fridge to marinade for an hour while we went for a ru...

My husband is not fond of fish but I keep trying to sneak it into his diet. This was a great recipe - I had all the ingredients on hand and it was easy. I used 3/4 cup cracker crumbs and 3/4 c...

This recipe was absolutely delicious. We live on Vancouver Island and in the heart of fresh halibut country, so I was able to get a fresh filet. I followed the recipe exactly and served it wit...

I'm sorry, but this recipe was awful. I followed the recipe exactly as written, and both my husband and I thought it was waste of good halibut. I'm an excellent cook and although I was skeptic...

WOW!! Very tasty and tender. I followed the recipe with the exception of using Essence of Emeril seasoning in place of seasoned salt.A little parmesan cheese in the crumbs might be a good additi...

I followed the recipe to the T. There is way too much flour and saltine crackers called for. No grease or butter is suggested to prepare the baking dish. It was not crusty or crispy. Somewhat of...
