Minus all the lacy-detail around the edges, I am L-O-V-I-N-G the style of this dress. Maybe a drapey-scoop neck w/ spaghetti straps even.. Now, where do I find my dress??

Baked Halibut with Sour Cream, Parmesan and Dill Topping

Baked Halibut with Sour Cream, Parmesan and Dill Topping


2 pieces halibut or other mild white fish, thawed if frozen and patted dry with paper towels

salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

3 T low-fat sour cream

1/4 tsp. garlic powder (can use 1/2 tsp. finely minced fresh garlic, but the garlic powder was easy)

1/4 tsp. dill weed (dried dill leaves)

2 T finely ground Parmesan cheese

3 T sliced green onion (about 3 green onions)


Thaw frozen halibut overnight in refrigerator, then place in baking dish and blot dry with paper towels. Let the halibut come to room temperature while you prep other ingredients. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.

Slice 3 T green onions, then measure 2 T and finely chop them. Reserve the other 1 T sliced onions to garnish the cooked dish.

In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream, garlic powder, and dill weed. Stir in the finely grated Parmesan cheese and green onions. When fish has come to room temperature, use a rubber scraper to spread an even coating of this topping over each piece of the fish, using all the topping mixture.


Bake fish until the internal temperature reaches 145F/62C, or until fish pieces feel firm but not hard to the touch. (Use a fork to press down to test.) Serve hot, sprinkled with remaining sliced green onions.
Timing will depend on the thickness and type of fish you're using.

"AWESOME drink from POM Wonderful : : 'Patronus Charm.' Patron Tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, and, of course, Pom Wonderful. Like Harry Potter, the toast is 'Expecto Patronum!' It wards off the evil dementors and any other bad vibes. J.K. Rowling might even approve!"
