I am an avid lover of white fish, so when I discovered the Lemon Halibut with Capers recipe, I knew it was a hit!
- 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)Cut one lemon into slices, as shown in the picture. The other two lemons will be squeezed into a bowl. Keep that juice for later!
2)Start off with adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter on a medium pan on medium high heat. This will be the searing part of the halibut. The halibut will need about 5 minutes on each side! We are using a pretty thick halibut, so if you are using a thinner halibut, it will probably be less time. If it doesn't cook all the way through, do not worry as we will be putting it back on the pan. If you notice the halibut cooking all the way through, lower the heat. You don't want to overcook the halibut!
3)Before adding the halibut to the pan, salt and pepper both sides with your hands. Once the butter completely melts, add the halibut.
4)After five minutes, flip the halibut to the other side and add the sliced lemon around the halibut. After five minutes, remove from the pan. It's sauce time!
5)Lower heat. Using the same pan and the same juice, add 2 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter melts, add the garlic and white wine. After three minutes, add the juice of two lemons, capers and parsley.
6)Add the halibut back on the pan and scoop the juice over and over again onto the halibut. Place the lemon onto to plate!
