Garlic-And-Herb Oven Fried Halibut

Well most of it's done in the oven! The original recipe is from Cooking Light but I've made a couple modifications. While the fish is baking I deglaze the frying pan with a flavored vinegar (I use a tequila-lime vinegar) and a little water, then top the fish with the sauce before serving. Here's a great resource for more ideas on deglazing

Easy, flavorful and unique. I made a few changes: egg whites instead of the whole egg, orange roughy instead of halibut, white wine vinegar. I think I let the vinegar reduce too much because I didn't have enough. But what I was able to get on the fish really made it pop, so be sure to watch it and pull it off the fire as soon as it is ready. Also, I forgot to season the fish before breading so it was a little bland. Great recipe, I will make again!
