Pan Seared Halibut

"Halibut has a delicate flavor and firm texture. Overcooking can dry it out. So Pan searing and basting with the oil/ butter mixture keeps it moist and flaky. Pan searing adds a nice light crust to the outside of the halibut. Then into the oven to finish cooking."

    This was so fabulous we had it two nights in a row! Very easy. The only hard part is fresh Halibut. A real keeper recipe!

    I was skeptical about this recipe at first but I tried it and it's simple and very good. I didn't have Season Salt so I used Spike seasoning instead. It was perfect! I cut back on the oil and skipped the butter to make it more reasonable in terms of fat grams. Even without the butter/oil sauce, halibut turned out moist and flavorful.

    This was great! I've found it a little tricky to locate a good recipe for seared halibut so was happy to come across this one. The only small adjustment I made was adding more of everything (while still serving two people) since we like to have extra sauce for dipping. Beautiful brown and tasty on the outside and white and flaky on the inside. Thanks for posting, will surely make it again.
