  5. Layer the asparagus in bottom of prepared loaf pans, and place halibut pieces over asparagus, while ensuring the halibut is not completely touching the sides of pans, and sprinkle halibut with seafood seasoning. Liberally top halibut with sauce, including ensuring that you spread it down the sides between halibut pieces and insides of loaf pan edges.
  6. Place filled mini loaves on the prepared baking sheet and into the preheated oven, uncovered, and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.

  19. Tips: This is also great using frozen or fresh whole green beans as an alternative to fresh asparagus. Also, these freeze very well by wrapping the loaves with plastic wrap, then foil, and marking the top with the date and contents. When frozen, we take them from the freezer and place in the refrigerator overnight, then let them come to room temperature for 30 minutes prior to baking the next day.
