February 2008
A super-quick take on aioli, this garlicky sauce keeps the fish incredibly moist.
  • 1 3/4 lb halibut fillet (1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • Accompaniment:

    lemon wedges
  • Preheat oven to 450°F with rack in middle.
  • Put fish in an oiled shallow baking dish and sprinkle with teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  • Force garlic through a garlic press into a bowl, then whisk in oil and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Whisk in mayonnaise and spread over fish.
  • Bake, uncovered, until fish is just cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes.
