We used cod (didn't have any halibut at the grocery store; the rest of the recipe followed exactly) and really enjoyed this dish. I used the full amount of "breading" despite other reviews to cut back. I didn't feel that half would have been enough even though I did have some left over. Getting the "breading" mixture to stick was a different story! I might try a low fat buttermilk next time and let it sit a while. May also try the recommendations to add some garlic power and/or cumin. Served with a small portion of rice and sauteed hericot verts and thinly sliced sweet peppers.
Cornflake-Crusted Halibut with Chile-Cilantro Aioli
The test kitchen loved this halibut dish with herbed garlic aioli so much that they gave it their highest rating. You'll love that it takes only 25 minutes to make.
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fish fillet, about 1 tablespoon aioli, and 1 lemon wedge)
