Asian Baked Halibut in Parchment #fishrecipe #steamedfish #healthyseafood #seafoodrecipe #halibutrecipe #parchmentAs much as I love to cook, I dislike doing dishes.  We always have a lot of dishes even though there are only 3 of us.  So when I get the chance to cook and not dirty a lot of dishes, I am all over it.That is just one of the fabulous things about this recipe for Baked Halibut.  You cook the halibut in little parcels of parchment paper put on a baking sheet.  If you properly close up the parcels, the baking sheet stays clean.  After you plate the fish, crumple up the parchment and throw it away.
