Today’s Recipe: Cereal-Crusted Halibut

Cereal toasts beautifully under the broiler to give this simple fish dish a crispy, salty-sweet, low-fat coating. Yum!

Makes 4 servings

1 1/2 cups Kellogg’s® Smart Start® cereal

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill

3/4 teaspoon salt

4 halibut fillets, 6 to 7 ounces each

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

  1. Place oven rack in top position of oven, closest to broiler. Place a second rack in middle position. Preheat oven to 400 F. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  2. Combine cereal, dill and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Place halibut fillets on baking sheet. Brush with oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Bake until fish flakes with a fork, about 12 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and brush with mustard. Spoon cereal mixture onto fillets, pressing on it with the back of a spoon so it adheres to fish.
  5. Turn oven to broil. Return pan to upper rack of oven, and broil until halibut crust is deep golden, about 30 seconds. Note: Watch carefully, because crust will burn quickly as soon as it has browned.
  6. Transfer fillets to dinner plates and serve immediately.
