    Halibut baked in sour cream is delicious! Goes well with potato salad and green beans, or try it with rice and a green salad.

    This was scrumptious - I grew up in Alaska and have eaten halibut cooked many, many ways - so I truly enjoyed the flavors. Changes I made are: Used 1/3 cup of each 3/4 cup ingredient. Grated fresh lemon zest and sprinked cracked pepper on halibut instead of lemon pepper. For the salsa, I used some leftover homemade tomatilla salsa...wonderful - can't wait to make it again.  -  11 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Neither hubs nor I enjoyed this. The topping is rather flavorless, and serves only to keep the fish kind of "wet." A sauce should enhance the food it accompanies, not dominate or bury it. Some ideas to improve this would be to bake, grill or broil the fish separately, then serve the sauce on the side. As for the sauce itself, it needs some flavor additions - chile powder, jalapeno or bell peppers maybe?  -  27 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Really enjoyed this recipe. Have lots of Halibut from an Alaskian fishing trip and tired of the traditional way of cooking fish. I will be making this again only I think I may use just the cracked pepper instead of the lemon pepper or maybe cut down on the lemon pepper.  -  13 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
