Ranch Halibut

1 envelope (1 ounce) ranch dressing mix
16 round buttery crackers (Ritz), crushed (3/4 C)
2 Tbsp butter or margine, melted
1 tsp lemon juice
1 lb halibut, marlin or other firm fish fillets about 1 inch thick, skin removed
1/2 C tartar sauce
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp lemon peel

Heat oven to 450. Line rectangular pan, 13x9 with foil; spray foil with cooking spray.

Mix dressing mix (dry) and crackers in a shallow bowl. Mix butter and lemon juice in another shallow bowl.

Cut fish into 4 serving pieces. Dip fish into butter, then coat with cracker mixture. Place in pan.

Bake uncovered 10-15 min or until fish flakes easily with fork.

While baking, mix tartar sauce, parsley, and lemon peel. Serve tartar sauce with fish.

We really like the fish, but hated the tartar sauce (I don't think we like plain tartar sauce either).
