Baked Halibut with Panko Crust was a slap-dash winner.

A Costco run for Indonesian tiger prawns to make Min a batch of BBQ Garlic Shrimp from our book Cheater BBQ got sidetracked by a stack of wild-caught Pacific halibut. A Rhode Islander in Nashville is easily tempted by good looking fish. So, at $17/pound I chose carefully.

Min directed me to M’s Belly, a cool food blog by our pal Michele Parvisi, where her Panko Crusted Dilly Salmon recipe was parked. Our spin on her salmon dish swapped the dill for parsley and dropped the dijon mustard. The mustard would be too strong a flavor on our delicate white fish.  Serve with roasted potatoes, your favorite salad dressed with a simple vinaigrette dressing and any other vegetable if you like. Pair with a crisp, cool white wine. Here’s another great example of how panko crumbs come in handy and always chef things up a bit.

Here’s what we did.
