Wanna know why we think this recipe is so great? We love it because we have the wonderful crunch and taste of a fried Halibut dish, but without all of the calories because it's made in the oven! What's not to love about that?

What You'll Need:
  • 1/2 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs (prepared)
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Lemon wedges
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.

  2. Dip fillets in milk, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat completely.

  3. Lightly coat a 10-inch by 15-inch rimmed baking sheet with oil; heat pan at 500 degrees for 3 minutes or until pan is very hot. Carefully arrange fillets on hot pan, and drizzle with melted butter. Bake fillets at 500 degrees for 7 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve fillets with lemon wedges.


A coating of crisp, dry breadcrumbs and quick baking at high heat on a preheated pan make this oven-"fried" halibut extra crispy-and extra good!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

How about using Panko instead of bread crumbs? Might come out extra crispy.

BTW, try using Reynolds Wrap "non stick foil", I can't live without it, saves a lot of washing pans.

Would this also work for a less expensive fish like talapia?

I have subbed tilapia in several fish recipes and found it to work perfectly. Try catfish it's wonderful.

This is a great recipe.Did not have parsley or paprika so I used dill and oregano. Very good! Took about 12 minutes to bake but the fish was pretty thickly sliced.
