Butter-Basted Halibut Steaks with Capers recipe

Get the pan smoking hot so the fish won't stick. Let it get a good sear on the first side, which will also help it release. Author: Alison Roman

Serving size: 5
Calories per serving: 147


2 ounces 14–16- bone-in halibut steaks (1"–1 1/4" thick)
kosher salt coarsely ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
4 sprigs thyme
2 garlic cloves, peeled, crushed
3 tablespoons drained capers


Season halibut with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet, preferably cast iron, over medium-high heat until beginning to smoke. Cook halibut until golden brown, 6–8 minutes. Turn and cook until the other side of the fish is golden brown, about 4 minutes longer.

Add butter, thyme sprigs, and garlic to pan and cook, tilting pan and spooning butter over fish, until halibut is opaque throughout and butter is brown about 2 minutes. Add capers; toss in butter to warm through.

Divide halibut among plates and spoon butter sauce over.
