    I didn’t use the bread crumbs due to keto dieting, and i passed on the Parmesan. I did the Tin foil and baked it in the oven at 350 for 22 minutes. That was perfect and i paired it with asparagus that went great with the sauce and buttery onions. The halibut and all was excellent. Rich, fatty, keto healthy!! ??????????
