Baked Halibut On Bed Of Cabbage (P, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 6

6 halibut steaks (frozen)
3 cups shredded cabbage (half of a medium cabbage), not too thin
lemon juice from 1 lemon, divided in half
1 bunch parsley, *see Note
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 garlic cloves, mashed fine
granulated garlic (not garlic powder)
5 tablespoons olive oil (divided into 2 and 3 tbsp.)
salt and freshly ground pepper

You will need a rectangle dish that hold 6 halibut steaks.

In a bowl put cabbage, half the amount of lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon salt, some freshly ground pepper, 1/8 teaspoon granulated garlic, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

With clean hand mix the cabbage, and squeeze a little the cabbage to soften. Arrange in the rectangle dish as first layer.

On top put the frozen halibut.

In your food processor using the steel knife, put parsley and using on/off button 2-3 times. Add all other ingredients - not granulated garlic but the fresh mashed one. Add another 1/2 teaspoon salt and some ground fresh pepper. Work food processor again using the on/off button, until all blend nicely.

Arrange over the halibut and spread evenly on top.

Cover with aluminium foil and bake in preheated 375°F hot oven for 20 minutes. Take off cover and continue to bake for another 20-25 minutes or until you get a nice color on top, and your fork will come easily out of the fish.

At this stage, if you get some guests, you can prepare the fish an hour before they arrives, and continue the second stage 25-30 minutes before you serve the dish. Uncover and continue as written above.

Poster's Notes: To prepare parsley, I take the bunch in one hand very near the leaves, and pull down the stalks. With the other hand I twist the stalks until they are torn. Wash leaves in bowl with plenty of water and dry them with paper towel.
