The Chew: Mustard Crusted Halibut Recipe & Charred Sweet Peas Recipe


The Chew: Five In Five

Now and then, The Chew crew takes on a Five In Five challenge. Can you make a meal with five ingredients in five minutes, for under $5? Michael Symon took on this challenge for the Time Saving Suppers episode, and that’s how he made the Mustard Crusted Halibut Recipe you see here.

Michael told Daphne Oz and the team not to overpower halibut, because it is a mild fish. You could also substitute another type of fish if you wanted to.


Cooking fish is easier than most people probably realize. It does tend to leave a lingering smell, though, which may be why a lot of people don’t like to cook it at home.
