BAKED HALIBUT WITH ALMONDS

Karen Barnaby is a chef in Vancouver, British Columbia who has written a number of cookbooks.  I have a few of her cookbooks including "The Low-Carb Gourmet".  I went to this cookbook for some inspiration on cooking fresh halibut steaks.  I found several recipes including one that used pine nuts and parmesan as a top coating.  I tweaked the recipe, reduced the portions to serve 2 people and the result was delicious.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper.  Place the steaks or fillets on the paper.

Season the fish with salt and pepper. Smear the top of each steak with mayonnaise.

In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sliced almonds, 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill and 1 minced glove of garlic. Pat the almond mixture onto the mayonnaise covered halibut, pressing lightly to make it adhere. Bake for about 20 minutes.

It is delicious as it looks.
