Halibut with vegetable crest.

This make-ahead dish can hold overnight; it bakes in 15 minutes.

2 halibut or salmon fillets or steaks (about 1/2 lb. each)

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 cup each finely grated carrot and chopped seeded tomato

3 tablespoons each chopped green onion and mayonnaise

2 tablespoons cream cheese, mashed to soften

1 tablespoon minced parsley

1/4 teaspoon pepper Salt

2 lime wedges, optional

Lay fish in a single layer in a shallow rectangular or oval 1-1/2- to 2-quart baking dish. Pour lemon juice over. With a fork, mix together carrot, tomato, green onion, mayonnaise, cream cheese, parsley, and pepper. Add salt to taste.

Mound vegetable mixture equally atop fish. If made ahead, cover and chill up to overnight.

Bake, uncovered, in a 400[deg.] oven until fish flakes when prodded in thickest part with a fork, about 15 minutes. Using a wide spatula for support, lift fish onto individual dinner plates; accompany with lime to squeeze on to taste. Makes 2 servings.
