  • Put 3 tablespoons butter in a 10-or 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
  • When the butter melts, add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the wine and bay leaves; increase heat to high, and cook until the mixture is reduced to about 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes.
  • Add the stock and reduce to about 1 cup, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the halibut along with some salt and pepper, turn the heat to low, and cover.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until the halibut is tender (a thin-blade knife will pass through it with little resistance).
  • Transfer the halibut to a warm plate and stir in the remaining butter, cooking and stirring until the sauce is smooth.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning; pour the sauce over and around the fish, garnish and serve.
