Charlotte Hartwell of Sacramento sent us this recipe in response to Gina Yancey's request for halibut recipes. Hartwell found it in Larry Hubble's cookbook, "Sure Strike Lodge, Alaska."
3 pounds fish fillets (lingcod or halibut)
1 cup sour cream
1 whole lemon, juiced
¼ cup butter
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 large onion, sliced 1/8-inch thick
4 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place the fish in a baking pan.
In a small saucepan, over low-medium heat, heat the sour cream, butter and lemon juice until mixture is blended. Set aside.
Season fish with salt and pepper. Break apart the onion slices into rings. Scatter over top of fish.
Pour the sour cream mixture over fish. Generously grate cheddar cheese over top.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until fish is opaque and tests done by flaking with a fork.
