Parmesan Crusted Halibut
This recipe for Parmesan Crusted Halibut with Roasted Asparagus is the perfect one pan meal. Packed with protein, Keto friendly, low carbohydrate, high in omega-3’s and full of deliciousness, this recipe is the quintessential healthy New Year meal.
Halibut is simply the perfect fish for this recipe. With its tender flaky flesh and light mild flavor, that crispy parmesan crust really shines through on these moist halibut fillets. Here at Sizzlefish, our halibut is wild-caught in the pristine waters of Southeast Alaska, off Baranof Island. We size-select our fish to yield perfectly tender, flaky fillet servings. This light eating fish is an elegant treat and one of the highest-value seafood items. Alaska Halibut is also a naturally lean fish that cooks up white, flaky and loaded with protein.
In truth, in our humble opinion, you can never go wrong with a flavorful mixture of lemon juice and garlic on your seafood. However, adding in that salty savory punch of parmesan cheese that gets beautifully crisp and brown takes this dish to the next level. We love the simplicity of ingredients here, that keep this meal right at 30 minutes, but feel free to make this dish your own by adding your favorite fresh herbs to the mix if you choose to. A nice side of fluffy buttery golden mashed potatoes would absolutely compliment the flavors and textures of the parmesan crusted halibut and garlic roasted crisp tender asparagus. For our keto friends, you could add a side of buttery mashed cauliflower to keep those carbs down while adding in another easy delicious side dish. However you choose to serve this meal, trust us when we say this is a must make in the New Year. You will most definitely not be disappointed.
