    Very nice. Quick, easy and tasty. I used Greek yogurt to add even more protein and added some paprika... I'll probably add garlic to it next time and let it marinate for a while before baking. I am looking forward to the leftovers. Thanks for posting!

    This was good, and it was very quick & easy to make. Next time, I would use a very small onion, and I would saute it beforehand...there was too much raw-ish onion on the fish for my taste. Other than that, this was very nice. Thanks!

    I'm really glad to have this. A relative in Alaska sent a box of halibut. Based on reactions from previous reviewers I used green onion and some Spanish paprika. Also used Eatwell Farm Dried Lemon Salt, no lemon juice but put sliced meyer lemon from our yard on top. The paprika and sliced lemon made it colorful. We were very happy with it.

    can't wait to try this! I my then try it with bread crumbs lightly on top.


I have been a member of recipezaar and food.com for years. This is definitely my go-to place for recipes and love that I can have all my individual cookbooks to sort and store recipes. ? I like to experiment when I cook and find that I rarely follow a recipe as it is written. I am also pretty health conscious and try to cook low-fat for regular everyday meals (you can't skimp on the rich stuff for holiday meals & treats!). I also avoid processed foods and use fresh wholesome ingredients whenever possible.
