  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 (8 ounce) steaks halibut

  • ½ cup white wine

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic

  • 3 tablespoons capers, with liquid

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add halibut steaks and sear until nicely browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  2. Pour wine into the pan and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Cook until wine is almost completely gone, then stir in garlic, butter, and capers. Season with salt and pepper, then simmer for about 1 minute to blend the flavors.

  3. Return halibut steaks to the pan. Spoon sauce over steaks to coat; cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 2 to 3 more minutes.

  4. To serve, cut steaks in half and pour pan sauce over top.
