One-Pan Dinner: Halibut with Potatoes and Corn

I love one-pan dinners.  Not a lot of dishes, no worrying about everything getting done on time, a whole lot of things make one pan meals a delight.  Normally, I am not a fish person but I do love halibut.  I was very excited when I saw this recipe for halibut in Cook's Country magazine.

The original recipe calls for sing 12 ounces andouille sausage and red potatoes.  I modified the recipe by using Yukon gold potatoes and no sausage.

This dish is prepared in the oven using a large baking sheet.  First you roast in a hot oven 500 degrees F.  the corn and potatoes.  Roast them for about 20 minutes.  Once the veggies are done, your remove the corn from the baking sheet and add your halibut.   Reduce your oven temperature to 425 degrees F and bake for about 10 minutes or until your fish registers 130 degrees. 

Remove the baking sheet from the oven and serve.  I especially loved the potatoes in this recipe.  They skins were crispy and flavorful.  The corn and fish had a very nice flavor.  The Old Bay butter added extra flavor and made the meal.  This was a very easy dinner to prepare and a delicious one.
