HALIBUT BAKED WITH HERBS

HALIBUT BAKED WITH HERBS

2 pounds halibut fillets (6 fillets)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, cut up
3 tablespoons lemon juice

HERB MIX NO. 1
1 teaspoon onion flakes, dried and rehydrated, drained
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon marjoram leaves
1 teaspoon paprika
Dash pepper

HERB MIX NO. 2
1/2 cup Rice Chex®, crushed finely
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon sweet basil
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon parsley flakes

  1. Wipe fish with a damp cloth, dot with butter, and sprinkle lemon juice over all. Use either of the spice mixes shown.

  2. Herb Mix No. 1: Prepare onions and sprinkle over the top of the fish. Combine the remaining herbs/spices and sprinkle on halibut. Let stand for 10 minutes to absorb the flavors. Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

  3. Herb Mix No. 2: Mix all ingredients together well. Sprinkle over fish; use only enough to lightly cover fish or it will taste dry. (The remaining mix will store well in a tightly covered jar in the refrigerator.) Bake at 350ºF for 20-30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Do not overbake or it will dry out. Serve garnished with lemon wedge and parsley sprigs.
