Parmesan Crusted Halibut

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

I know, I know…this is a site about becoming a grillmaster and I’m posting a recipe that doesn’t involve a grill. What the heck am I thinking?!? I’m thinking, this is too darn good to not post. I will post a grilled Halibut recipe in the future, but for now, enjoy this absolutely killer Parmesan Crusted Halibut.

Trust me, this is awesome. This comes out with a perfect crust, super moist and absolutely freaking delicious.

Supply List

 

Instructions

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step 2: While the oven is heating, prepare the fish. Use a cooking spray or olive oil to grease your baking dish. Drizzle a little olive oil over the halibut and season ever so slightly on both sides.

Step 3: In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, seasoning and ¼ the Parmesan cheese. Mix and spread on top of the halibut. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan on top of the halibut.

Step 4: Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Step 5: Change the oven from bake to broil and broil for 2-4 minutes but make sure to keep an eye on the fish. I keep my oven lid slightly open and watch carefully. You are looking for a nice golden crust.

Step 6: Remove for the oven, let rest a couple of minutes, then serve with lemon slices and enjoy!


Lessons Learned (Note: I will update this section to include your lessons learned from the comment section)

  • Do not walk away from the halibut while using the broiler. The parmesan crust can burn very quickly.
