This is hands-down one of my most favorite fish dishes to make. Any white fish can be substituted for the halibut. I believe it comes from a Cooking Light cookbook. Everyone who's tasted it loves it!

This halibut was very good. I did not have any anchovy paste so maybe it is even more flavorful with the paste. I don't know if it is just me, but I have made halibut several times, and no matter how I prepare the fish, it just doesn't have enough flavor for me. This recipe was the most flavorful I have had. Thanks for the recipe!

This was a nice way to serve Halibut - the topping reminded me of bruschetta. I'm not big on raw onions and next time will saute them a bit before adding them because the cook time really isn't long enough for them to cook and soften. Other than that, it's a tasty dish and enjoyed by all.

Very nice halibut, the combination of the provencal veggies offset by the white wine was quite delicious. We enjoyed the crunchy topping, the parmesan cheese was a lovley finish. Thanks for sharing a recipe we will be making agian.
