Parmesan Halibut

Parmesan Halibut

This is a family favorite that I’ve been making for a long while now and I just realized I’ve never posted the recipe. My daughter had her braces tightened yesterday which always means we need to have a soft dinner. Last night, I made this parmesan halibut with some orzo and roasted tomatoes. The entire meal was delicious but the star of the show is always this parmesan halibut. It turns out tender and delicious with the tastiest cheesy topping and I love that this recipe is easy enough to make during the week but special enough to serve to guests.

How to Make Parmesan Halibut

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Whisk the mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon of parmesan cheese, and minced garlic together until well combined.

Place the halibut pieces in the baking dish skin side down then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Brush the mayonnaise mixture evenly over each piece of halibut on the top and sides. Sprinkle the remaining bit of parmesan evenly on each piece of fish.

Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and cook, watching carefully for another 1-2 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the fish is cooked through. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley. Serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy.

  1. Looks moist and delicious Pam – I’ve cooked halibut a couple of times and yet to be happy with it – think I may get it over done. I’ll try this next time.

  2. That looks just about perfect to me will be on the menu here very soon. Thanks for sharing. Diane

  3. Halibut is such a great fish, isn’t it? Flavorful, but it also is a nice canvas for other flavors — like this terrific cheese topping. Great dish — thanks.

  4. This was so good. After it had been in the oven10 min it was nicely browned and I didn’t need to broil it. Moist and flavorful

    1. Susie,
