Pan Fried Halibut Steak with Light Green Sauce
July 11, 2006

My mother and I spent 15 minutes talking about how delicious this recipe was. I didn't even add capers (forgot). I used light butter, and used half the basil and parsley (for 2 halibut steaks), and 1/4 cup of the heavy cream, used one lemon, etc. I thought the sauce would boil away but it didn't. My mother doesn't drink any alcohol so I added mine after I dished hers out. I did not use salt, instead using a very light sprinkle of Cajun seasoning (I'm supposed to not use salt, so I cheat with Cajun seasoning, which has salt but it makes me feel like I'm not using salt). I had leftover halibut from a seafood company that delivers, and swore I couldn't wait to never buy halibut again, but I've changed my mind. This was EXCELLENT. I am shocked at how good it was. And I am no chef. I usually don't follow directions well (hence, no capers). I ate salad with no dressing to go with the meal, as I'm trying to watch my weight. Haven't added up the calories but it was as filling as eating 2 potatoes!
