Baked Halibut With Jumbo Lump Crab And Gremolata

I was so full of turkey after Thanksgiving, I wanted something light for dinner, so off to the fish market I went. I was looking in the case and I spotted halibut, I never had it before so I asked if it was mild because my husband isn't crazy about fish and he said yes, so I went for it. Contemplating all day I came up with this, it took all of 5 minutes to put together and is absolutely delicious!! I simply placed the whole loin on top of pats of butter, then I seasoned it with salt and pepper, added more pats of butter and on top of that I topped the whole loin with 1/2 pound of jumbo lump crab meat. Next I made a simple gremolata by mixing about 2 cups of panko, 3 tablespoons of chopped parsley, the zest of 1 large lemon, salt and pepper and enough olive oil to make it moist enough to hold together 1/2-3/4 of a cup. I pressed that firmly on top of the fish, added some white wine into the bottom of the baking dish and baked it at 425 for about 30 minutes.
I served it on top of a bed of baby arugula simply dressed with extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. What a simple and easy dish that will impress!!

*I think this would be good with just about any fish
**perfect for a dinner party without being stuck in the kitchen served with a side of rice
