Easy Panko Crusted Halibut

Written by Sara Ross

What a crazy busy time of the year!  Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have a lot of meetings, holiday parties, and family gatherings, on top of the normal work/school/farm life we already have going on.  I love this time of the year, but I don’t like how busy it always is!  It makes it fly by too fast!  


With it being so busy around here, I’m always needing something fast, but nutritious to feed my family of four on week nights.  The boys (Hudson 4 and Axten 2) are always hungry and ready for supper by the time we get home so I don’t usually have much time to whip something up.  This halibut recipe is so simple, but yet so delicious you’ll want to put it on the menu frequently!  And it only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish!

While the fish is baking in the oven you can cook the sides.  I like to serve brown rice with a little soy sauce mixed in and steamed broccoli with it. Other side options that would be quick and easy are baked potatoes, asparagus, green beans, etc.  The boys eat this right up and both my husband and I enjoy it too!

About the author

Sara Ross

Sara grew up in south central Nebraska, in a little farming town called Elwood. Her family was in the insurance business, so between the two she’s been around agriculture her whole life. After high school, Sara went on to get her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and accepted a job with RCIS, the nation’s largest crop insurance company, as their trade show consultant. She traveled all over the country, but calls the Commodity Classic farm show “her favorite”, and it is no mystery as to why. She met her husband, Kevin, at that show in 2006.

Together, Kevin and Sara are the sixth generation to farm the land that they live on outside of Minden, IA where they raise 600 acres of corn, soybeans, hay, pasture ground and approximately 80 head of cattle.

In 2008 Sara went to work for her dad at their family insurance business, The Home Agency. She is currently their Marketing Manager. In 2010, she became involved with CommonGround which is a group of farm women who want to start conversations with their urban counterparts about what it’s like on a farm and how their food is grown and raised. She’s gotten to meet a lot of consumers through this grassroots program who are genuinely interested in learning about food and agriculture. This led to Sara starting her own blog, SarasHouseHD.com where she talks about family, food, and life on a farm.

Sara and Kevin had their first son in 2010 and their second son in 2012. They love growing up on a farm and would ride in the tractor with their dad 24/7 if we let them! In between being a farmwife, a mother, a marketing manager, a CommonGround volunteer and a blogger, Sara loves to talk about what it’s like on a farm and to share recipes with others. In her spare time, her hobbies are traveling, photography, snow skiing, crafts, hunting, and reading.
