Honey-Lemon Seared Halibut

Fresh halibut is one of the sweetest, smoothest-eating fish you can buy. Frankly, almost anything you do with it (except overcooking) works, but if you want to accentuate it's great natural flavor with just a hint of Asian, this is your recipe. You can make it in a heavy frying pan on the stove or  — or, our favorite — on the grill. Either way the honey in the basting sauce caramelizes to give you a sweet, yet tangy, accent.

           INGREDIENTS

            METHOD

Fresh halibut fillets

2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 lemon, juiced

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 cloves garlic, minced

 

 

 In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, honey, lemon juice, soy sauce, pepper, and garlic.

Portion your halibut by cutting it with a sharp knife into 3 or 4 pieces. A serving size of fish is 3 to 6 oz so portion it depending on the particular size of your filet. Brush both sides of each with the liquid mixture.

Heat a pan until it is sizzling hot (a drop of water sizzles and immediately evaporates when it hits the pan). Sear the halibut for 90 seconds on each side. Reduce the heat to medium and cook each side for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the fish can be easily flaked with a fork.
