How to Cook Halibut Steaks With Butter

Save

Halibut is a flatfish, as are flounder, sole and many others. Halibut has a dense, firm texture with a mild flavor. It is very low in fat and high in protein. The fish is cooked in a number of ways and readily takes on the flavor of the various seasonings used to complement its flavor. Halibut also requires very little preparation and cooks in only a few minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Heavy skillet with lid
  • Butter
  • Lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Fork
  • Place fresh halibut steaks into a heavy skillet in which butter has been melted over medium heat.

  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the halibut and sprinkle immediately with sea salt and pepper to taste. Cover the pan with a lid.

  • Simmer over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

  • Decorate the serving plate with lemon wedges and fresh parsley sprigs and serve immediately.

Tips & Warnings

  • Store halibut in the refrigerator in plastic wrap.
  • Pregnant women should be cautious of eating fish because of possible mercury content.
  • Always wash the fish under cold water and gently pat it dry.
