Halibut With Tarragon-Lemon Breadcrumbs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

During Lent, we are always looking for easy-to-prepare, economical recipes that offer a change of pace. This recipe definitely fits the bill! You can substitute cod for the halibut. Just toss fresh or stale bread in the food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs are formed.

Great fish! I used cod and thyme instead of the tarragon but otherwise made as directions. As the cod was very thick and half frozen I needed to cook it quite a bit longer than the recipe indicated. thanks for sharing!
