Ingredients

  • 2-4 Halibut fillets
  • 1/2 pound or fresh thin asparagus, trimmed (optional)
  • 1/2 or more pint cherry tomatoes, halved (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoons  butter , softened
  • tablespoons  mayonnaise
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ -1 teaspoon creole seasoning
  • 1 ½ tablespoon garlic , minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil
  • lemon slices , (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F. Spray baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Pat dry Halibut with a paper towel to remove any excess water. Then season with salt and pepper and squeeze lemon juice all over the fish. Set in a baking pan or dish.
  • Do the same for tomatoes, and vegetables, if using any. Use a baking tray if using more vegetables.
  • Bake Halibut for about 6 -7 minutes, depending on its thickness. Be careful; they bake up pretty fast. It will finish baking after you add the sauce.
  • While fish is baking, mix together butter, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, creole seasoning, garlic, lemon zest, and basil in a small bowl. Thoroughly mix together.
  • Remove halibut from the oven and spread the Parmesan mixture over the top and sides of the fish. If desired, rub it on vegetables too.
  • Return the fish and vegetables (if using any) back into the oven. Turn the oven to broil and cook for 2-3 minutes until the tops are lightly browned. Serve immediately with a low carb meal or serve with rice. Garnish with lemon slices.

Notes

  1. You can replace halibut with tilapia, cod, flounder, turbot and striped bass.
  2. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
