Steps to make Oven Roasted Halibut

  1. To prepare Parmesan tuiles, preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave 4 to 8 strips, each 1/2-inch wide and about 6 inches long, from the wedge of cheese.
  3. Lay cheese strips in a single layer, not touching, on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake 3 to 4 minutes or until they begin to turn golden brown.
  4. To prepare arugula purée, blanch arugula in boiling salted water for 1 minute, then immediately refresh in ice water.
