It is Friday again. Means fish night for us. I’m not a big fan of fish as it could be quite bland sometimes. So whenever i cook fish, it has to be bold and flavorful like this crusted halibut. Not too bold as i do not want to cover the delicate flavor of the fish. Flavors that make my eyes pop like a popcorn with lifted eye brows and ripples on my forehead like the waves. If you are in a hurry or just wanna take a break from cooking like i did today, this is the perfect slap it on and put it in kinda meal. Fast, super easy and delicious. I served this parmesan crusted halibut with crispy roasted potatoes. I simply used three ingredients for the fish and off to the broiler. Easy peasy.
Halibut is a flat fish from the family of the right eyed flounder. It has a mild flavor, flaky in texture with a light colored flesh. The best time to buy halibut is from May to August as it is cheaper and taste better when it is in season. What makes this dish so good is the combination of the delicate flaky fish and the intricate amount of flavors in the cajun with a cheesy crispy crust. Instead of regular cajun seasoning, i’ve bought Red Lobster’s seafood seasoning from Wegmans to try it out. It turned out delicious but a tad spicy, I love the hint of smokiness from it as if it was cooked right out of the grill. As for the crust i used shake and bake parmesan. You could use any cajun seasoning and make your own parmesan breadcrumb crust. This recipe is a fast go to meal if you’re pressed for time or just don’t want to deal with mega cooking. Take a break, have a glass of Riesling, let the fish speak for itself.
