  • 12 oz halibut cut into 4-6 pieces
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms – portabello or white button
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
  • Grated parmesan
  • Seasoned bread crumbs
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Marinara sauce – your favorite store brand or homemade


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sauté onion and garlic briefly in a little olive oil.
  3. Add mushrooms and cook for a few minutes.   Vegetables should still have a little bite to them.
  4. Make an egg wash with 1 egg and 3 Tbsp milk.   Mix equal parts of parmesan and bread crumbs to coat the halibut.
  5. Dip the halibut into the egg wash and then crumb mixture.
  6. Cook in 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium to medium high heat.
  7. Cook until about ¾ done - just about 2-3 minutes per side.  Remove from pan.
  8. In 2 individual casseroles (or one larger one), divide the halibut between the casseroles and top with  the vegetables. 
  9. Top with ½ - 1 cup marinara sauce and cover with mozzarella cheese. 
  10. Cook at 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes or until halibut is done.  
  11. Pop under broiler to brown cheese if necessary.
