Halibut holds up extremely well when paired with strong, bright flavors, like fresh herbs and coarsely ground breadcrumbs. This dish calls for the fish to be baked for eight minutes and then finished under the broiler for two minutes to make the crust extra-crispy and golden.

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Meanwhile, combine the breadcrumbs, herbs, garlic, half the lemon juice, and a pinch each of salt and pepper in a small bowl until combined — spread generously on top of each halibut portion.

Transfer the fillets to an ovenproof pan and bake for 8 minutes, then switch to the broiler and cook for another 2 minutes. Divide the remaining lemon juice among the fillets and serve immediately.
