Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 10 mins

Servings: 4


1 Tbs olive oil

2 8-oz. halibut steaks

½ cup white wine

¼ cup butter

1 tsp chopped garlic

3 Tbs capers with liquid

Salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add halibut steaks and sear until nice browned, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Pour wine in the pan and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Cook until the wine is almost completely gone, then stir in garlic, butter and capers. Season with salt and pepper, then simmer for about 1 minute to blend the flavors.

Return halibut steaks to the pan. Spoon sauce over to coat. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 2-3 more minutes.

To serve, cut steaks in half and pour pan sauce over the top.
