Halibut Meunière

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Cindy Barr

Using a bit of salt to season the fish and a little more to boost the pan sauce heightens flavors without going overboard in sodium. A little lemon juice and fresh parsley round out flavors. Serve with haricots verts and fingerling potatoes to complete the meal. For another flavor boost, serve with fresh lemon wedges.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

Preparation

  1. 1. Pat fish dry, and sprinkle both sides with black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with flour. Melt 1 1/2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fish to pan, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully turn fish over; cook 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; set aside, and keep warm.
  2. 2. Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to pan, and cook 1 minute or until lightly browned, swirling pan to melt butter evenly and prevent burning. Remove pan from heat; stir in juice. Drizzle juice mixture over fish. Sprinkle fish with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve immediately.
