Just for the Halibut (with Panko and Garlic)

Catagory: Main Dishes
Difficulty: Fairly Easy

Oh yes! This is so good, I had it on my birthday. Get the freshest halibut and the best cook you can find. Mix together and serve with fresh steamed vegies, sweet potato fries and a good tartar sauce with a little dill and Dijon mixed in to taste. Oh, and better remove the cook before eating--she may be tough. Common Sense Tip: This is it for a special occasion and get really fresh halibut. Note: This recipe was originally filched from "Cooking Light" the August 2007 issue. Yield: 6 servings
