Halibut heaven

Halibut.Apart from the Monty Python sketch, it's not often I think about (an) Halibut - named Eric or otherwise. With a little fennel remaining from a salad of fennel, mushrooms, and Parmesan, I was interested in fish for dinner.

Our local seafood market had a marvelous fillet on ice, and I was determined to make something worthy of it.

The Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Thinly slice some fennel and leeks.
  3. Add 3-4 TBs of olive oil to a baking dish, and the veggies.
  4. Roast until just beginning to brown.
  5. Make a cracker crust for the fish
    • whole wheat crackers (crushed)
    • paprika
    • ground fennel seed
  6. Egg wash the fillet and dredge.
  7. Place on top of the roasting veggies for 15 mins.
The Result
We served this with steamed green (bamboo) rice, which has a subtle herbaceous flavor, and the remaining seven (six) layer salad. A fantastic meal!
