  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 dash dash hot pepper sauce
  • 1 pound skinless halibut fillets thawed, if purchasing frozen halibut


  • Preheat the oven broiler. Grease a baking dish with butter or with non-stick spray.
  • In a bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, green onions, salt, and hot pepper sauce.
  • Arrange the halibut fillets in the prepared baking dish or sheet pan. Using a paper towel, pat the fillets dry.
  • Move the top rack to about 4 inches below the broiler heating unit. Broil halibut fillets 8 minutes in the prepared oven, or until easily flaked with a fork. Cook time will depend on the thickness of the fillet.
  • Spread with the Parmesan cheese mixture, and continue broiling 2 minutes, or until topping is bubbly and lightly browned.


How to tell when the halibut is done. Pull the rack just far enough out of the oven to be able to test with a fork. Using the back of a fork, press down on fillet. If the fillet starts to flake, it's cooked.  Depending on your oven, the fish will take about 3-4 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness. It's best just to watch it close and check on it every 4 minutes.
Substitute chopped chives for the green onion.
