This is a quick and easy grilled fish with a goat cheese crust and a lemony cream cheese sauce. Serve with a light salad.
Substituted orange roughy for the halibut because that's what I had, but the crust and sauce both were excellent! A little heavy on the lemon pepper in the crust for my liking, but my beau loved it as is. - 18 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was hesitant that the halibut might be a little bland because there was no marinade. But, I was wrong. Because of some of the other reviewers, I omitted the lemon pepper and mixed the goat cheese with lemon juice and kosher salt and cracked black pepper. I added just a bit of balsamic vinaigrette in the bottom of the pan for a little extra flavor and it was awesome. Although, I think it would have been fabulous without it as well. Some of the other reviewers didn't make the cream cheese sauce, but, it really is a must. Thanks for this recipe! Coming from Alaska, where Halibut if abundant, we are always looking for great new Halibut recipes and this is a keeper! - 10 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Bleck! I love goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon pepper, etc... This recipe was not good My husband and I started laughing as we realized we were both trying to choke down the fish with a straight face. If you insist on cooking this, reduce lemon pepper! Way too much. - 02 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
