Baked Halibut with Panko, Lemon and Parsley and a Garden Update

Baked halibut with Panko, Lemon and Parsley

The weather has been kind of odd this summer. Lots of rain and then warm humid days makes for a fast growing garden, (and um; a few weeds). Yes I know there are quite a few of them.  I need to spend some time out there. There has been a few unwanted tunnels but nothing like last year….maybe the mole detector is working after all.

Garden update

Mustard greens (below) is a new plant for us this year I planted it from seed straight into the ground, nothing fancy and they are growing like gang busters. Chard is a veggie that I grow every year, sometimes I will have one or two plants that makes it through the winter. Such a wonderful treat when we come back each year.

Mustard greens

We picked up halibut from the town of Newport yesterday  and decided to prepare it very simply. I dredged it in a mixture of panko, lemon zest, parsley and olive oil. We really enjoy the crispiness and texture that panko lends to a dish. My husband is the chef when it comes to baking or grilling fish as I always, always over cook it. I have to say he does an amazing job.

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  3. Chard is one of our garden staples -- always get a good crop out of it. I plant it in the spring, and it always lasts until after the first couple of frosts. Anyway, your garden looks great! And love fresh halibut. Nice, simple preparation for it -- thanks.

  10. Well doesn't that look delicious. Being land locked fish stupid, I'm assuming that halibut is from your part of the sea? And your garden looks beautiful. That lettuce! We have to fuss so much with lettuce here, Denver is high dessert arid climate.

  13. Such a great way to cook halibut, Cheri. It doesn't need much help at all and it's just so darn delicious. It's my fav after salmon but I don't buy it that often because it's super expensive here. Time to get out west and fish for some! Fabulous garden - I'm SO jealous!

  27. I haven't had HALIBUT in EONS!!! I must change that but I always find WHITE FISH needs a crust (like this) or a sauce to taste good (aside from black cod and chilean sea bass). YUM!

  28. Dear Cheri, wonderful new blog design - clean and fresh like the foods you prepare. Love the garden and the pictures of all that wonderful produce that you are growing. Halibut is such a delicious choice of fish and you prepared it in the most delightful of ways!
    Have a great weekend,

  29. Great recipe Cheri and your garden looks great. I am in need of doing some serious weeding in parts of the garden as well. It was rainy for a few days and that is all it takes. I have to say again how much I like your new blog design and the header is perfect!

  30. Cheri - your garden looks fantastic and I don't see any weeds. (I always choose NOT to see weeds! :) The halibut looks really good, too. So expensive here in Tucson - and I bet it's really fresh, sweet, and tasty up there.
