I have struggled with baking fish for years. I finally found this recipe and now I feel confident when I bake my husband's Alaskan halibut. Time to send him back for some more fresh fish. This was such a simple, but successful recipe. Loved the results! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So often the simplest things are the most delicious! This recipe is super easy, quick and healthy and lends itself to tweaking to your personal preference. I did season with salt and pepper along with the lemon juice. I only had a half a lemon and twice the amount of fillets in this recipe so I also grated the zest and that amount of lemon was excellent. After reading the reviews, I cooked the halibut at 400 for 15 minutes and it was still just a little overdone for me, which could be due to my oven or the size of the fillets. Next time, I'll be a little more careful and check it a bit earlier. I chopped up some parsley and sprinkled that on top of the fillets before serving for some nice freshness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Based on other reviews, baked at 400 for 15 minutes and it was perfect. Almost too much lemon flavor. Sprinkled some Mrs. Dash and Panko Bread Crumbs in addition to paprika and olive oil. Next time, I'll put a pat of butter on top of each piece. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I use either Hungarian paprika or Old Bay but I like how simple it is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not care for this recipe. Perhaps I used the wrong kind of paprika, but it simply lacked any flavor whatsoever. Waste of a fish. Better to use a proper fish rub instead. The cooking instructions, for their part, were accurate enough. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree with previous reviews, 450 at 15 minutes for two 8oz pieces was a little drier but definitely not destroyed by any means. Very tasty. I went a little too liberal on using every last bit of juice in the lemon and next time might go lighter on it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sounds so simple, but the result was really fantastic. I agree with GourmetDiva, the heat was too high and it turned out drier than I'd prefer, so I'd use 400 next time. But for quick and easy this can't be beat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I bought a 3 lb halibut filet from Costco, used 2 TBSP olive oil for the whole thing and used the lemon and paprika as instructed. I also added a bit of dill weed and threw some parsley sprigs on top. I feel like the oven setting for 450 is a bit too high, so I started out at 400. Cooked for 15 min to perfection. I was told halibut was tough to cook, but it came out very soft, flaky, and yummy. This recipe had simple instructions and was very tasty. I would advise carefully if you set your oven to 450 to maybe check it a little more, but I'd rather start lower and cook longer than burn my thick fillets. item not reviewed by moderator and published
