Baked Halibut with Bread Crumbs

A new farmer’s market opened in the Outer Sunset, so naturally I had to check it out. After reading a few optimistic reviews, I decided to give it a go and was very pleased with what I found. A great selection and easy navigation made this new market a welcomed addition to the neighborhood. There were two seafood stands, which is unique. You’re lucky to find meat, let alone a seafood vendor, and here there were two. One vendor had an impressive variety with coolers full of fresh seafood – mussels, salmon, rockfish. I bought the halibut and followed this recipe by A Foodie Stays Fit. It was amazing. I paid $18 for two filets that could easy cost a lot more at a local restaurant. I followed the recipe for the most part, using homemade breadcrumbs made from old bread end slices and dried oregano from my backyard. I served the fish with sautéed cherry tomatoes and garlic (also from the market) and farfalle pasta and peas in a light butter sauce. The result – perfect flaky white fish with a crunchy topping that melded well with the pasta. Simple, elegant, and worth the effort. You’ll be sure to find me at the Outer Sunset market again buying fish along with vegetables and fruit that are a plenty as well.
