This is so good! I usually halve this recipe when it's just my husband and me. I have also added fresh spinach leaves to the baking dish. I found this in an old Sunset cookbook.
- 2 lbs halibut steaks
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes or 2 very ripe tomatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
- 3 tablespoons butter
- Lay halibut in a close-fitting, buttered, shallow baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper and pour cream over.
- Cover with tomatoes and top with onions; dot with butter.
- Cover dish tightly with foil and bake in a 375° for 20 minutes.
- Remove foil and spoon cream over fish then continue baking for about 15 minutes, basting occasionally with the cream, until fish flakes easily.
add 1/2 lb. sliced mushrooms, 1/2 cup dry white wine, 1 bay leaf and 1 whole clove of garlic and it's like a recipe by Craig Clairbourne that I was going to post. His recipe doesn't have the tomato but it sounds great.
Oh wow. Soooo good. The spinach goes really well and makes it nice and colourful. The only reason i'm not rating top is because i added parsley & organo, and i think the herbiness is key. Also I'd use less onion. Since my tomatoes weren't particularly ripe i added a teeny bit of sugar to them. On top of the absolute deliciousness, it was easy and very quick to prepare
