Simple Baked Halibut Recipe

Simple Baked Halibut Recipe

Chris Stephens
This recipe was submitted to Uncle Dan's by one of our customers, Ron B., in Spokane, Wa. He 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 package of Uncle Dan's Creamy Ranch prepared as salad dressing
  • 3-4 halibut fillets (skinned)
  • 1 corning baking tray
Instructions
  1. Pour 1/2 of the dressing into the tray.
  2. Place halibut filets in tray.
  3. Pour the remainder of the dressing over the fillets.
  4. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degress for approximately 30 minutes, or until the halibut flakes.
  5. If dish overcooks, it becomes a chowder-like consistency.

Major Ric's Pretzel Recipe

Major Ric's Pretzel Recipe

Chris Stephens2 comments
INGREDIENTS:
  • 1 pound of mini twist pretzels
  • 4 ounces of Orville Redenbacher popcorn oil (can substitute with olive oil)
  • ½ a package of Uncle Dan’s® Classic Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon of garlic powder*
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon of dill weed*
  • *The amounts of garlic powder and dill weed can be varied according to your taste.
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Pour the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl, add the popcorn oil and mix thoroughly with a whisk or electric mixer.
  2. Spread the pretzels out in a large 10” by 16” roasting pan and pour the marinade evenly over all of the pretzels. The dry ingredients are not completely absorbed in the oil so it is best to use a tablespoon to ladle the marinade over the pretzels.
  3. Every 10-15 minutes for the next hour and a half use a spatula to stir the pretzels and keep doing this until they fully absorb all the marinade. When this is done, I can assure you that the pretzels will not be soggy, and I can also assure you that you will find it impossible to eat just one.
  4. For 2 or 3-pound batches, just double or triple all of the ingredients. If you are going to make more than 3 pounds, I would suggest using two roasting pans; the thinner the layers of the pretzels, the quicker and the more evenly the marinade will be absorbed.
