This fish recipe mimics fried flavor without the added fat … the fillets are coated in crunchy, Japanese-style breadcrumbs called panko and they bake up so crispy, you’ll swear these tender halibut fillets are deep-fried! 😉

STEP 1: For the coating, you will need …. 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) + 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil + 1 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley + 1/2 tsp onion powder + 1 large garlic clove, minced … combine all together in a shallow dish

Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray … bake at 230°C for 6 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness .. optional : grate some Parmesan cheese atop fillets if you so wish to .. I did so 😉 … serve up with vegetables (+ potatoes?) of your choice
