Last night my fiancee made something so unexpectedly delicious (unexpected because I am not normally a seafood fan, at all). Our daughter, who has never tasted fish because of my particular aversion, DEVOURED this, making me feel completely guilty for not introducing her to fish sooner. Also, it came together very quickly, which is always nice. I stole the recipe from him to share with you. This fed the 3 of us, you may want to double the recipe.

Ingredients:

1.5 lbs filet of Halibut

1/2 cup Italian seasoned breading

1 tsp salt

1 tsp Italian seasoning

4 tbsp butter, divided

1/2 box of orzo

4 cups chicken broth

2 tbsp olive oil

1 red pepper, diced

1 crown of broccoli, diced

1/2 onion, diced

1 tomato, diced

2 cloves garlic

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Chop all of the veggies and garlic and cook in a pan with the hot oil until tender. Set aside. Now, begin to boil the chicken stock. While that starts to boil, toss the breading, extra seasoning and salt together. Dredge the filet of halibut in the breading mixture, place on a pan, and drizzle with 2 ounces of melted butter. Throw the filet in the oven. Now, add your orzo to the boiling chicken stock.

After 12-15 minutes, pull the halibut out of the oven. By this time your orzo should be cooked as well, so drain it, toss your sauteed veggies in, and add the remaining 2 ounces of butter in, stirring well. Enjoy!

Ooh, I like the sounds of this. I'd really like to incorporate more seafood into our diet, but I'm never sure how to prepare it. I have had good luck with making fish chowder and with grilling shrimp, and of course I know how to cook a lobster but none of us really care for it... ;-)

I would have to switch out fish, I dont like halibut but sounds like you could use with other fish, I'm gonna give this one a try

Wow, does that sound good!  We did a lot of tilapia (baked) during Lent, this would have been great!
