Tasty Halibut/whitefish recipe.
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:00:24 PM »

1⁄4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
16 ounces fresh halibut steaks, 3/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

In a small mixing bowl, combine 1/4 cup butter, shallots, dill weed, parsley, mustard, lemon juice, garlic and salt; mix well.

Rinse halibut steaks in cold water and pat dry on paper towels.

In a 8 inch x 8 inch oven proof casserole dish, add 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Place under the broiler on HIGH heat for about 2 minutes or until the butter has melted.

Place the halibut steaks in the casserole dish.

Spread one half the lemon/herb mixture equally over each steak.

Place under the broiler on HIGH heat and broil for 6 minutes.

Turn halibut steaks over and spread the remaining lemon/herb mixture evenly over the steaks.

Continue to broil on HIGH heat for another 5 to 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Do not overcook the fish.

Serve with cooked basmati brown rice.

You may also use finely chopped chives or green onions instead of the shallots.

The fresh dill, parsley and shallots just make this.  It's a simple recipe,  but the house ends up smelling awesome and the result is delicious.  I bought enough of the fresh herbs to make it several times,  so tomorrow I'm going for an encore with walleye.  The only change I would make is adding some pepper.

Looks quick, simple, and good.
