EatingWell Test Kitchen
“A speedy roast at high heat keeps the halibut moist and succulent, and the savory thyme-sesame-crust adds a distinctive finish. Serve with mashed potatoes and a steamed fresh vegetable of your choice.”

½ teaspoon minced garlic
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
