Parmesan Crusted Halibut

Parmesan Crusted Halibut
serves 3-4

1-2 Pounds Halibut Fillet, 1-Inch Thick
1/4 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup Plain Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
1 Lemon, Zested
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
2-3 Tablespoons Pesto

Preheat the oven to 450.  Line a baking sheet with tin foil and spray with non stick spray, set aside.  In a small bowl, mix together panko, bread crumbs, Parmesan, lemon zest, and salt and pepper.  Arrange the halibut on the baking sheet.  Spread the pesto on the top of the halibut, then top with the bread crumb mixture, lightly pressing it into the fish.  Spray with cooking spray lightly to coat.  Bake for 12-15 minutes until crumb mixture is golden brown and fish flakes with a fork.

If you are going to only make one halibut dish in your life this should be the one!  The crust was so flavorful and the fish came out perfectly done.  I think I'm going to have to make this again this weekend because I literally could not get enough!  I served the halibut with sauteed butternut squash and potatoes.
