Former Easy Fish Recipe Featured Recipe

This wonderful recipe combines crispy baked fish with an interesting bean salad recipe. There are some side dishes which often seem to make an appearance whenever fried or baked fish is served and those include onion rings, fries, mushrooms, peas, or a green salad. There is nothing wrong with serving classic favorites but sometimes it is nice to make something a little different and that is why the following recipe for parmesan-crusted halibut and bean salad is so great.

The fish is dipped in a milk and egg mixture and then in flour which has been flavored with paprika and parmesan. This gives it a nice crunchy outside as well as plenty of flavor. The fish is baked in a very hot oven until it is opaque. Make sure you do not overcook the fish or it will go dry.

The bean salad can be make the day before you need it. You could make it just before you need it but, for better blended flavors, make it in advance. You can use any kind of beans for this, as well as red onion, sun-dried tomatoes and some other flavorful seasonings.

This easy halibut recipe makes a beautiful dinner. Even though the bean salad is simply a question of stirring the ingredients together and the fish is similarly easy to prepare, this recipe is sure to impress and satisfy. The crunchy parmesan coating on the fish gives it a gourmet flavor and the simple cheese-flavored fish contrasts well with the tasty mixed bean salad. Fish is a great meal choice because it is rich in protein and nutrients and baking it means you get all the flavor of fried fish without the extra calories or fat frying would entail.
