Younger Daughter the Chef prepared this delectable dish for us (she doubled all the amounts shown here).
- 1.5 pounds of halibut
- 1/8 lb. butter
- Parmesan cheese to taste
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 1 16-oz. container sour cream
- 2 TB gourmet mustard or white-wine gravy* (thick)
- 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Remove from oven and generously spread sour cream mixed with mustard or gravy on the top and sides of halibut fillet. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Return to oven and bake for an addition 20 minutes or until fillet is done. Sour cream should be slightly browned.
She served the fish with lightly buttered pastina on the side; steamed bazmati rice, or any other long-grain wild rice is also good. Use your imagination. :)
I'm sorry I don't have any pictures of the presentation, but we were all crowded around the counter, grabbing food. I was afraid that if I stopped for photos, I'd lose out; turns out I was right.
