Halibut is a sweet-tasting fish that is high in protein, B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. The potato chip-crust makes this baked halibut recipe especially appealing to kids.

Green beans with browned butter and butternut squash fries make nice accompaniments for this halibut recipe.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound halibut fillets
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed potato chips

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a 2- or 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk together the mayonnaise and mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Brush the mayonnaise-mustard mixture over both sides of the halibut.

  4. Spread the potato chip crumbs out in a shallow dish or on a plate. Dip both sides of the halibut in the potato chip crumbs.

  5. Place in the prepared baking dish. Bake 18-22 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
