Easy Pan Seared Halibut with Lemon Caper Sauce

This delicious pan-seared halibut is made with fish seared in butter and oil, and then served with a lemon and caper pan sauce. It can be a little pricey, however, so if you want to, you can substitute almost any other fish fillet in this recipe.


  • 1 pound fresh halibut, skinned* and cut into two equal portions
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Few grinds black pepper
  • 3–4 slices lemon (we used Meyer lemons but regular lemon will do)
  • 2 teaspoon fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup white wine such as Chardonnay
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon capers drained
  • 2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley chopped
