Meals Made Easy: Halibut

To say the least: Fish is plentiful in Alaska.

A fish dish finds its way into the meal planning of our household often.

My favorite? Halibut.

Tip: For those fortunate enough to fish halibut, and eat it fresh, right out of the ocean;
a halibut 100 pounds, or less, is a keeper;
anything over that, consider it a trophy but, also consider letting it go.
Bigger doesn't always equate to better;

at 60 pounds or less, halibut tastes best!

I have a few different recipes for halibut that are among my favorites;
as a busy mom, anything for breakfast, lunch or dinner, cooked, or baked, must remain simple;
this halibut bake takes 5 minutes of prep. time and 20 minutes in the oven.
And, if you like mayo., this recipe's for you!

Baked Halibut for Two

What You Need:

1 Bunch of Green Onions

Lemon Peel

Two, 8 ounce Halibut "Steaks"
Cookie Sheet

Prep. Guide:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cut your green onions and lay them as a bed for your halibut steaks upon your cookie sheet.

Lay your halibut steaks down, directly on top of the green onions.

Lightly sprinkle the lemon peel over-top of the halibut.

Liberally spread the mayo over the top and sides of your halibut steaks.

Last step of prep: Sprinkle salt and pepper over your halibut masterpiece.

Your halibut is now ready to bake!

Baking Guide:

Place the cookie sheet, with halibut goodness, into the oven for 15-20 minutes.

When the halibut is done, your mayo-covered steaks will have hints of golden brown on their edges
and will flake easily with a fork.

Serves two.

For additional servings:

Simply add more halibut steaks, and bunches of green onions,
to the "What You Need" list;
as well as, a full 20 minutes in the oven.

Ideas for Sides: 

Continue the thought of "Meals Made Easy" and "Keep It Simple" with  
Potato Pancakes and/or Roasted Carrots
Either choice pairs nicely with this dish and compliments it.
