2 pounds of halibut*
8 T butter melted in small bowl
2 cup Ritz or Town crackers crushed
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1 t Italian Seasoning
1 t salt
1 t pepper
1/8 t cayenne(optional)
Heat oven to 400º Aluminum foil cooking sheets
Mix crushed crackers, Parmesan, and seasonings in large rimmed bowl.
Skin and dry the halibut. Cut halibut into 3/4 wide pieces. Dip into butter and then coat with cracker Parmesan mixture. Press the coating firmly onto the fish. Place on baking rack place on baking sheet and do not crowd. Bake 15-20 minutes until fish flakes and crust is golden brown. Remove and serve. Maybe served with lemon garlic mayonaise sauce or tartar sauce.
If you like heat add 1/8 t of cayenne. We enjoyed our fresh caught halibut and salmon last night. Halibut fish sticks and curry honey glazed salmon with grilled asparagus, potato salad, and for dessert fresh raspberries with lime sorbet.
*If halibut is too expensive cod can be substituted
