  • 1-2 pounds halibut (about 6 filets)
  • 1 stick butter (softened)
  • 3 tablespoons Parmesan (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together all ingredients except for the halibut (this can be done by hand or in a mixer).
  • Pat halibut dry with a paper towel and lay each piece onto a sprayed/greased baking sheet. Divide the Parmesan butter into the number of pieces of fish that you have and flatten it out so that it covers the top of the fish.
  • Cook the fish for 10-12 minutes (rotate the pan halfway through). It should be almost done. Turn the broiler on high for 2-3 minutes until the top is golden brown. The fish should be flaky when tested with a fork.
