Panko Crusted Halibut

Halibut is one of my favorite fish.  Sweet and mild with a firm texture that flakes apart when properly cooked.  It’s a great fish to entertain with, because it’s mild flavor is appealing to many palates.  When serving halibut to a group, I prefer to serve a large center cut piece of fish as opposed to individual portions.  That being said, this preparation works well for individual portions as well.  When buying fish, a good rule of thumb is ~6 oz per person, but this number can be adjusted up larger appetites.  The recipe below serves 6 very generously but could serve up to 8.

Panko breadcrumbs are essential to this recipe.  Their crisp and crunchy texture is a perfect compliment to the halibut.  Panko breadcrumbs hail from Japan, and they are made with a crustless bread.  The have a lighter, crunchier, airier texture than traditional western breadcrumbs.  Panko is widely available in many supermarkets.
