To make this Easy Halibut Recipe, you will need the following ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil (I use Costco’s Kirkland brand!)
2 8oz Halibut steaks (Costco individually frozen)
1/2 cup white wine (Costco has great deals on wine, but not all carry wine because of state laws. Here in CA we are golden!!)
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup butter (I always buy the Costco BUTTER sticks in the blue boxes! Cooking and baking, I go through them like crazy!)
salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons capers, with liquid (I keep a BIG jar of Star brand capers in my fridge. Where else would I find a BIG jar at a great price? Costco!)
Start by adding 1 tablespoon olive oil to a frying pan. Heat the oil over med-high heat.
Fry the steaks until nicely browned on both sides. Remove from pan and set aside.
Pour the wine into the hot pan and use a spatula to scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Let the wine reduce a little.
Add 2 cloves crushed garlic. (picture obviously taken after wine consumption)
and capers with liquid. (Capers have a yummy flavor. It’s kinda a mix of lemon and pickle 🙂
Add halibut back to pan and coat with sauce. Cook until fish flakes easily. Do not overcook! Serve immediately.
I love to serve fish with Costco’s individually frozen ready to serve brown rice!
