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.
Cut: Halibut filet
Weight: 1.5 Pounds
Heat Source: Gas
Estimated Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Actual Cook Time: 18 Minutes
Estimated Cooking Temperature: 400 degrees
Actual Cooking Temperature: 400 degrees
Location of Purchase: Chula Seafood - www.chulaseasfood.com – local fish market
Cook Date: July 10, 2020
1/8 cup mayonnaise
½ Tablespoon Santa Maria seasoning (you can also buy this if you prefer)
1 ½ tablespoons Parmesan cheese (I used crumbled Parmesan for this cook)
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.
