Halibut Piccata

Recipe by VNess
READY IN: 25mins




  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • In a wide, shallow bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and pepper.
  • Preheat a nonstick saute pan over medium high until hot and add the olive oil.
  • Lightly coat the halibut fillets in the seasoned flour (I use Gluten-free mix, rice will also work) and place in the pan.
  • Sear until golden brown, about 1 minute per side.
  • Flip the fillets to sear the underside, then transfer them to a baking sheet and place in the oven to finish cooking, about 5 minutes more.
  • The halibut should be just cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, add the wine and lemon juice to the pan, stirring to scrape up any browned bits.
  • Add the garlic and capers and cook the liquid over medium-high heat until reduced by two-thirds.
  • Remove pan from heat and whisk in butter to create a creamy, piquant sauce.
  • Taste and whisk in more butter if desired.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place fillets on two plates and drizzle each with the piccata sauce.
  • Garnish with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
