Tips and Variations:

  • Add chopped tomatoes on top of the finished baked fish for extra flavor and great color. (See the image at the top of the page).
  • You can substitute boneless chicken breasts for the fish and create a delicious baked chicken recipe. Just cook them for about 15 minutes, until they are no longer pink in the middle.
  • If you use chicken and you want a bit of a different flavor, try replacing the tarragon with an equal amount of rosemary. Rosemary and chicken were made for each other.
  • Substitute other thick fish or fish steaks for the halibut if you prefer. Just don’t use thin fillets like sole as they may dry out a bit.
