Fish was on sale!

Omigod, we love fish in this household. The biggest issue is that fish has been really expensive* lately, and so therefore we haven’t really been eating fish as often as we like. But anyway! On Tuesday when we trucked up to do the grocery run, we found that halibut was on sale for super cheap. So we got a pound.

And then really had no idea what to do with it. I usually make tilapia or cod. And I usually have something in the cupboard to simmer that business in. This week I did not. Luckily, I actually knew about that while I was still at the grocery store (bonus!) and started poking around for something to simmer with. But then I got distracted by the idea of shepherd’s pie, and everything went sideways. What developed from this was a meal so yummy, I didn’t even get pictures before it was all gone. So let me tell you about it.

Full Disclosure Part 1: there is a lot of butter in this. If you don’t approve of butter, you will not like this dish. Full Disclosure Part 2: There are almost no precise measurements involved in this recipe, as I was putting it together on the fly. Ok, now that that business is out of the way, here’s the dish:

Fishy Shepherd’s Pieserves 3 (no leftovers**)

most of a stick of butter
1lb halibut fillets
juice of 1/2 lemon
some panko bread crumbs
4-6 small potatoes, sliced to 1/2″ rounds
Montreal Steak Seasoning
garlic powder
red pepper flakes
