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

Moist and delicious. Squeezed a little lemon juice over the fish fillets and seasoned them with salt and pepper before topping them with about half as much mayo/sour cream mixture (using light mayo and light sour cream and adding 1/2 cup shredded cheddar to the mix). Very good and easy to prepare. I'll be making again! DH loved it! Thank you.

I made this with thick pieces of Mahi Mahi and it was really good. When I started making it I discovered I was out of onion so I had to use minced onion. It was yummy anyway. I used light mayo also. Thanks for posting!

Delicious, and pretty much the same popular recipe we enjoyed when we lived in Anchorage AK. The only difference was that I sprinkled some seasoning onto the fish before slathering on the sour cream/mayo. also excellent with fresh Alaskan salmon.

This recipe sounds great and I will be trying it. Whether you can get fresh or frozen, always remember, if the fish smells fishy or has brown spots on it, don't buy. Fish that are caught humanely are not clubbed to death. Some fishermen will club the fish once they get the fish on board. Once that happens, there is a chemical released inside the fish that changes the natural flavor of the fish and smell.

This was great! Had a wonderful flavor. I used light mayo, light sour cream and it was still very tasty, every bite was gone! I seemed to have a LOT of mayo/sour cream so next time I might cut it down a little more. I only did one cup of each and still had a lot. It was nice because you could still taste the fish. Thanks for a keeper!

This is a super easy and delicious dish to make, but "OH MY" better only make it once a year at over 1000 calories a serving!! I have made this for friends and family and everyone loves it!
