Q. Claudia wants to know: Do you have a favorite way to fix halibut? Do you get halibut very often?
A. In answer to both questions: Oh, you bet we do! This whole past year we’ve had a freezer full of halibut because some friends took two of our grandchildren on a halibut charter. They all caught their limit, and my granddaughter’s fish weighed in at a hundred pounds!! Heidi’s mom, our daughter Lianne, likes to cut it into chunks, then dip in a batter made with stale beer, and deep fry it in hot oil. Here is my personal favorite way:
You lay halibut ‘steaks’ (slice the fish into pieces about 1″ thick) on a lightly oiled baking sheet. On top the fish put a nice layer of sliced Vidalia or Walla Walla Sweet onions. On top of that, put a fairly thick layer of sour cream. On top that, put a nice layer of grated Pepper Jack cheese. Slide it into a pre heated 350 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes. Yum! If I were a betting lady, I’d bet this will be your most favorite way to have halibut. It is even tasty the next day, cold! (that is if there is any left) -Bonnie
