Years and years…and years ago, Black Eyed Pea restaurant came on the scene as an attractive and affordable destination for office lunches with coworkers. We seemed to choose the restaurant at least once a week. Homestyle menu options and classic comfort food were a natural draw for that culinary era of the 80’s. Those cheesy casseroles, chicken fried steaks and homestyle meatloafs could also be an issue for the waist line. So I quickly because acquainted with a white fish entree on the menu. And while not perfectly what one would call clean eating, it made a healthier lunch selection.
I tried for years to recreate the dish, somewhat unsuccessfully, that is until I found this version. Although the recipe didn’t reference the restaurant, it comes very close to what I had there. There’s mayo involved, there’s parmesan cheese involved and it broils up to a heavenly topping for a flaky chunk of mild fish.
Read your seafood labels
Being landlocked the “seafood” section of my recipe data base is slim compared to the beef and chicken recipes. It consists mostly of shrimp recipes.
For this recipe I purchased a package of frozen halibut fillets which were labeled “wild caught.” Once at home, and after closer inspection, the label also read that the filets were processed in China. And didn’t indicate where it was “wild caught.” I wasn’t very happy to read that. I would have been happier reading about a fish that was wild caught in the Pacific waters off the US coast and cleaned, vacuum sealed and frozen at a nearby American processing center.
My point? Read the fine print on labels to insure you know where your food comes from. But I must admit, this halibut filet processed in China was fresh in flavor and perfectly tender and flaky in texture.
This broiled halibut recipe is a wonderful addition to our weeknight meal menu. It’s easy, ready in less than thirty minutes, delicious and a great way to add seafood to your weekly meal plan. I’ve had the recipe for a very long time and just realized I hadn’t shared it with my readers. Enjoy.
