"Oh boy!! This is delicious!! We eat a lot of fish and halibut is one of our favorites, so this recipe was made for us! I used the filets, and white mushrooms. The topping is scrumptious! I thought it might be a little lemony, but NOT! The flavors came together beautifully. Very easy recipe. I will make this again! Thanks Dorothy for another winner!"
"Another wonderful recipe by Dorothy Parks. My family and I loved this one. I salted and peppered the fillets before putting them in the baking pan. Then followed your recipe the rest of the way. The topping is really what makes this so flavorful and scrumptious. Thanks Dorothy."
"Simple and delicious! I used Lingcod for my fish. I will absolutely make this again. The broiling time was perfect for me, but I can see how it would vary depending upon the thickness of the fish, how far it's placed from the heat source and the efficiency of the broiler. Thanks for posting."
"This was absolutely delicious!
I have to agree with other reviewers-cook the halibut on its first side for longer than 5 minutes, THEN flip it over and pour the sauce. It's not a big problem, but cooking the halibut with the sauce on it for longer made the sauce run off.
But otherwise, this was a huge success, the mix of flavours was amazing! Perfect with pasta."
"This was excellent! I mad a whole meal of the mushroom theme. Check out my menu Mushroom Madness."
"Lovely recipe, makes a change from what we usually have. I added garlic (because everything needs garlic :D ) and a little cayenne pepper.. but other than that, I made as is. Thank you for the wonderful recipe Derf."
"This was a really delicious meal! I used thick cut halibut steaks- which needed about 15-17 minutes to cook. With that being said, I wish that I would have given the first side the shorter amount of time because I too feel that my mushrooms did not cook all the way through- they really could have used a few more minutes under that broiler to be PERFECT- but this was pretty darn close. I'll play with the timing next time. A REALLY fantastic tasting dish and beautiful to plate! Thanks for sharing!"
"This fish looks and tastes spectacular. I used tilapia instead of halibut. I needed to broil the topping side of the fish for about 10 minutes for the mushrooms to get golden brown and for the fish to be done."
"What a great recipe! The flavour was wonderful and the fish was so moist! I had a bit of a problem because my fillets were very thick. Next time, if my fillets were thick, I would make sure they were cooked almost completly before putting on the topping. As it was, I had to cook the second side several extra minutes because the topping was very thick, so it took quite a while for the heat to get down to the fish. The topping also slipped off a bit, so probably steaks or thin fillets would work best. Next time I think I will add a little more lemon juice, and ginger, and maybe add some dill. It was absolutely delicious as written and I wouldn't want to overpower the fish, but I think a little more flavouring would be fine. This recipe is definitely a winner! "
" We absolutely loved this recipe - The appearance is fabulous and the taste equals the appearance.I had a 1" thick fillet so it took a bit longer in the oven but it came out perfect, moist with a beautiful topping. I used small Portabella mushrooms. Derf I have said it before but I do love your recipes Thanks again -- posted Mar 21, 2004, Up Date Made this again and enjoyes it as much as last time!"
"Excellent recipe! I will be making this one again!"
"Delicious! I had some Best Foods roasted garlic & herbs mayo I wanted to use up so I left out the ginger but kept everything else the same. I'm sure it will be as good or better next time I make this using light mayo and ginger. Halibut was about an inch thick and the timing in the recipe was right on."
"I did enjoy this, as did my husband. I thought it could have used a little less mayo and lemon juice."
"I did like this recipe, but my husband didn't care too much for it. It's about the lemon for him... I should've known better! It was a nice change tho'- next time I'll just have to keep the lemon to a minimum! I don't usually broil my halibut- especially the frozen stash (it tends to dry out too easily)- but this manner of preparation went surprisingly well!"
"EXCELLENT! This was my first time having Halibut. I found this recipe today and thought that I would give it a try, I'm glad I did. The flavors melded very well during broiling. This will be a favorite way to fix halibut and since we have been eating more fish, we will definately be making again. Thanks for sharing."
"this rocks! i'll be making this one over & over! i did add more lemon juice (it was atleast 2 tbsp--because i love that lemon flavor) and i also added more 2 green onions and a little less mayonnaise! ENJOY!"
"This was a very easy recipes with only a few ingredients. The flavors came together well, and we really enjoyed it! I will definitely make this for my next dinner party! Thanks!"
