Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Season pieces of halibut with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.

  • Fry the halibut until golden brown on both sides and fish flakes easily with a fork, about 6 to 7 minutes total. Remove pan from heat; transfer fish to 4 dinner plates and keep warm.

  • Return pan to heat; pour the wine into the hot empty skillet and use a spatula to scrape any browned bits from the bottom. Let the wine reduce by half, then stir in the garlic, remaining butter and capers. Let sauce simmer for a minute to blend the flavors. Pour sauce over fish and serve.

This was delicious and easy. Followed the recipe exactly. My only challenge was that I had fillets of different thickness, so some took longer to cook. Try to get all 4 the same thickness to make your timing easier. Serve with the salad w/berries and wild rice mix for a fast and tasty meal. Read More

Wonderful! I made the recipe as written, with a tad less butter. I could not find halibut today, so I used turbot. It was a fish I had not tried before, and it was a delicious substitution for halibut. Read More

Awesome recipe. I haven't been able to find Halibut lately because the grocers say its difficult to get this time of year, so I used grouper. It is a good alternative if you can't find halibut. Read More

I made this before, using a recipe called Capers and Halibut, on the Allrecipes website. This is when I even discovered Halibut and from then on there was no turning back. I love this recipe. I love this fish! More yummy recipes using halibut please! Read More
