This is a restaurant-quality dish that is not only easy but so delicious, it's an elegant dish to serve at a dinner party. This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in a larger baking dish or a shallow roasting pan. Serve this with fresh mushrooms sauteed in butter and Basmati Rice Pilaf you will think you are dining in a fancy restaurant!

Hi Kittencal. I made this for my family while visiting, along with a Cranberry-Fruit Coleslaw, and it was fabulous. Easy to make too. Halibut is quite expensive for a family of 6, but it was worth it to see everyone enjoy it.
