We love halibut because it is a wonderful white fish that does not have the fishy taste. These came from the waters of Alaska and were given to us by a friend.
Cut the fish into serving-size pieces. Salt and pepper one side and place it in a pan with about 3 Tablespoons olive oil and 1 Tablespoon of butter. Put the seasoned side down and then season the other side. Cook about 5-6 minutes on each side. While the fish is cooking make the salsa verde sauce.
1 small shallot
1 Tablespoon capers- smashed
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
3 Tablespoons parsley-chopped
3 Tablespoons fresh basil- chopped
salt and pepper to taste
When fish is cooked on both sides, remove to a paper towel to drain. Place on a serving plate and top with the salsa verde sauce.
