Simple Baked Halibut Recipe

Chris Stephens
This recipe was submitted to Uncle Dan's by one of our customers. Ron B. in Spokane, Wa borrowed the recipe from a halibut fishing expedition captain at Neah Bay in the 1970's. This recipe works well with salmon as well, as long as the skin and bones have been removed. It can also be done similarly on a stovetop, but would be consider poached not baked.
Ingredients
  • 1 Pkg Uncle Dan's Creamy Ranch prepared as salad dressing
  • 3-4 Halibut filets (skinned)
  • 1 Corning baking tray
Instructions
  1. Pour 1/2 of the dressing into the tray.
