This Lemon Butter Halibut is made with fresh halibut, butter, olive oil, lemons, garlic, white wine, capers and garnished with fresh parsley.


  • 1 pound fresh halibut
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoon drained capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over the halibut to your liking.  
  2. On a saucepan on medium high heat, add oil and butter and wait for the butter to melt. Add the halibut and sear for five minutes.
  3. After five minutes, flip the halibut to the other side and add the sliced lemon around the halibut. After five minutes, remove the halibut from the pan.
  4. Lower heat to medium low. Using the same pan and the same juice, add 2 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter melts, add the garlic and white wine and bring to a simmer. After three minutes, add the juice of two lemons, capers and parsley.
  5. Add the halibut back on the pan and scoop the juice over and over again onto the halibut. Serve and enjoy!
