    We liked this recipe so much we had the caterer use it at our wedding. All the guests raved about how it was the best halibut they had ever had. It also helps to have fresh halibut.

      *Note* If you can’t get your hands on fresh halibut, I’ve learned to cut all the brown parts off the halibut and then soak it in about 1/2 gallon of water with 1/4 cup lemon juice for about an hour. This usually takes out the fishy taste.

      I've been making a variation of this recipe for years and it's one of my all time favorites! I add equal amounts of green pepper to the onion, about 3/4 cup grated fresh parmesan to the sour cream/mayo mix, and instead of crackers I use a mix of 2 tbl melted butter, 3 dashes paprika (for color) 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs, 2 tbl minces fresh parsley, and about 1/4 cup additional parmesan.

      great recipe, but if your fish is 'fresh' there should be no need to soak to get rid of a fishy taste- fresh fish tastes fresh, not fishy

      This is very similar to a great recipe from Norway. Try these modifications. Marinate halibut at least one hour in about a cup of white wine with 1 teaspoon salt. Drain, pat dry and dip both sides of filet in bread crumbs, and put in greased baking dish. Mix onion, sour cream, mayonnaise together, plus 1/4 cup chopped green pepper and 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms. Grate about 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese over fish, and then spread mixture evenly over filets. Sprinkle remaining bread crumbs and a dash or two of Paprika over top. Bake 20 minutes at 500F
