Halibut Olympia

Halibut Olympia, Halibut Almondine, and Fried Halibut Chunks are my all-time favorite halibut dishes. On Good Friday, I made Halibut Olympia. It's super easy and quite delicious!

I served the halibut with whipped garlic potatoes and sauteed green beans, plus a nice white wine (varietal escapes me) recommended by the always spot-on Mr. Wright.

  • 1 lb Halibut
  • 2 small onions, sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley or 2 Tbs dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • In skillet over medium heat, sautee sliced onions in olive oil until translucent
  • Line bottom of baking dish with sauteed onions
  • In bowl, mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, shredded Parmesan cheese, parsley, salt & pepper, and butter
  • Roll rinsed, patted dry fish in bread crumbs
  • Place fish, skin sideways, on top of sauteed onions
  • Pour mayonnaise mixture over fish
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes

Cooking for Two

S. has asked me to marry him! No longer will I be "cooking for one" in New York City. I will, however, still be making meals in a teensy-weensy kitchen and with limited ingredients. Even more, I should be inspired to blog oftener now that I wil. be cooking for two (which is much easier, I might add!). I so look forward to the spring and summer: Be on the look-out for picnic-inspired posts from me!
