Living on the coast in Alaska ensures you have abundant fish. Halibut is one of my favorite options. It is a firm but mild white fish. This is one of the easy, quick recipes that my family loves. Almost every Alaskan has their own version of this recipe. I like to serve this with rice.

An easy and delicious way to bake halibut. The halibut is tender and most. The sauce is rich with a creamy, tangy flavor. Serve this easy-to-make recipe for dinner and everyone will be asking for seconds. It's simple for a weeknight meal but fancy enough when hosting company.

How To Make sour cream halibut

  • Cracker crumb coated halibut in a baking dish with cheese.
    Coat halibut with cracker crumbs. Place in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish in a single layer. Cover with shredded cheese.
  • Sour cream, onion, and mayonnaise mixture spread over halibut.
    Mix sour cream, mayonnaise, and onion together (I add salt and pepper to taste). Spread over the cheese layer. Try to completely cover the cheese in order to seal in the moisture of the fish.
  • Halibut baking in the oven.
    Bake at 500 degrees F for 20 minutes.
