When it comes to fish, I'm really particular--and I don't like strong fish. A friend recently gifted us with several halibut filets from their recent trip to Alaska, in exchange for some of our trout from Florida. Halibut is a firm, white fish with a light flavor. You can actually boil it for 2 minutes and it's just like eating lobster!
For this recipe, we used halibut, but it would also be good with shrimp, trout, redfish or any other firm fish. It was also pretty quick, so it's perfect for a weeknight or when you might be short on time but want something delicious.
Halibut filet, approx. 1 lb
4 tbsp butter, melted
2 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Lemon juice, bottled or fresh
Old Bay seasoning
Angel Hair pasta
Preheat oven to 350. Boil water for pasta.
Cut halibut filet into 1inch cubes. In an 8x8 oven-safe dish, add 2 tbsp melted butter and place halibut on top. Mix together remaining butter and 2 tbsp minced garlic, pour over fish. Sprinkle with lemon juice and season with Old Bay and black pepper. (Note: we like a good coating of Old Bay!). Top with grated parmesan.
Place in oven and bake for 10 minutes. While baking, cook pasta to preferred doneness. Drain pasta and toss in olive oil. You can also add basil, oregano or other desired spices. Set aside with lid on pan.
When fish is done, broil for 2 minutes to add a little crisp to the cheese.
Plate posta and add fish on top. I added some of the garlic butter to my pasta for additional flavor. Top with additional freshly grated parmesan.
Enjoy with a glass of wine!
