Recipes From the Alaskan Coast
2 lbs halibut fillets (skin removed)
3/4 cup chopped green onions
1 cup sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Pat halibut fillets dry. Place half of the green onions on the bottom of a baking dish. Place halibut on top of the onions and sprinkle the other half of the onions over fillets. Mix together sour cream, mayonnaise and parmesan cheese and spread evenly over halibut and onions. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily and it browns lightly.
Note: You can lower calories by using low fat mayonnaise and low fat sour cream without altering the taste.
Diane's Quick Salmon & Seafood Chowder
1 box (32oz) chicken broth
2 bags OreIda Southern Style Hashbrowns (we like the ones with onions and peppers)
1-pint jar canned salmon (or you can use smoked canned salmon or leftover cooked salmon)
1/2 cup cooked frozen shrimp, scallops, cooked halibut, smoked oysters...
1 pint cream
seasoning: 1 tbl Old Bay Seasoning, 1 tsp sea salt, pepper to taste. I add minced fresh basil if I have it.
Bring chicken broth to a boil, add potatoes and frozen seafood, canned salmon and seasonings. Return to boil, add cream, then reduce heat to medium-low. Heat through and serve with sourdough rolls.
Note: I use leftover fish from my halibut and salmon dishes in this and add other seafood that we like as well - your creation (cooked shrimp, scallops, etc.).
