Recipe says 'halibut' but I'm sure it'd taste good over cod, or salmon... And, just by way of a warning, I love this sauce, but, WOW! -- fish and garlic! The house does smell of it!
1½-2 lbs halibut fillet (1½" thick)
3 garlic cloves
2 Tbls olive oil
1/3 C mayonnaise
salt & pepper
lemon wedges (optional garnish)
Preheat oven to 450° with rack in middle.
Place fish in a greased shallow baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Force garlic through a garlic press and into a bowl; whisk in oil and a dash of salt. Whisk in mayonnaise. Spread over fish.
Bake, uncovered, until fish is just cooked through (10-15 minutes). Serve with lemon wedges.
