Recipe of the week: Baked Halibut

I had no idea what to make for dinner, but I did have some halibut fillets in the freezer.  So, I took them out to thaw and went to my Mother’s cookbooks and found a recipe for “Halibut steaks in Foil”.

3 Halibut steaks [recipe calls for steaks, I used fillets and folded them in half]
3 tomatoes – sliced
Basil [I used dry but minced fresh basil or parsley would be wonderful!]
Onion powder [I don’t have it so I didn’t use it.]
Salt & Pepper
Grated Parmesan
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place each piece of fish on a large piece of foil. Drizzle with olive oil. Top each with salt, pepper, basil, tomato slices and grated Parmesan. Fold and seal foil.

Bake 15 minutes. [Yianni taste tested and approved!]

This recipe was adapted from Halibut Steaks in Foil page 51 Lentils to Lamb, Social-Cultural Group, Assumption Greek Orthodox Church, St. Clair Shores MI 1978

    1. Hi Juliette,
      I am having a little trouble translating your “Greeklish”. Are you asking me about the cookbook, Lentils to Lamb, from the Assumption Greek Orthodox Church?

  2. That looks great, the last 2 times we tried to bake fish it turned into a gross soup like consistency, I think we over cooked it. I will try this method the next time!
