Pan Fried Halibut

Pan Fried Halibut...A really quick and easy way to do your fillet of fish. A really simple recipe....
I usually BBQ my fish but, when I don't have time to heat up the grill I opt for this version. The trick is to leave the fish to cook on one side for a few minutes without constantly turning and moving it. You want the fish to get a carmel color and seal in the juices before you turn it on the second side. Cooking it with a mixture of butter/olive oil also gives it the golden color. In this recipe, I decided to skip the butter. Hope you enjoy...

  • 1 fillet of fish (I used halibut...but you can use salmon,mahi mahi or any other fish)
  • 2 tsp fresh dill (I used 1 tsp dried)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped garlic, minced, optional
  • olive oil/butter
  • wedge of lemon
1. Rinse fish under cold water and pat dry. Coat fish with some olive oil. Sprinkle kosher salt , pepper and dill on both sides of fish.
2. Let rest for about 20 minutes.
3. Heat frying pan to high and add about 1 TBS olive oil.
4. Add fish fillet and lower heat to medium. It is at this point you can add 2 tsp butter to the pan (optional).
5. Cook fish for about 3-4 minutes on one side depending on the thickness.
6. Turn fish over and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily. Squeeze some lemon over the dish.
7. Serve warm with roasted asparagus and rice/mashed potatoes.
