Citrus Baked Halibut

This was my new fish recipe for Lent. I can't say it was great or anything, but it was okay.

Citrus Baked Halibut
Modified from Better Homes and Gardens
 
1 lb fresh or frozen halibut (I actually used tilapia, so really any white fish)
1 tbsp butter
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp dried parsley (they said fresh)
1/2 tsp finely shredded orange peel
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
 
Thaw fish if necessary.  Cut into serving size pieces.  Arrange in a 2 quart baking dish.
 
In a small saucepan, melt the butter.  Add onion and garlic and cook until tender.  Remove from heat and stir in parsley, orange peel, salt and pepper.  Spoon over fish.  Put orange and lemon juices over all of it.
 
Bake, covered, in a 400 oven for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
 
Makes 4 servings.
