Who doesn’t love a good piece of fish? I know I do. Sometimes, the simpler the better. When you buy a nice piece of fish, (and its getting more and more expensive by the day) you don’t want to take chances. This recipe couldn’t be easier. Salt, pepper, a little flour and olive oil. It let’s the flavor of the fish do the talking.
Begin with 1 1/2 lbs of fresh halibut fillet, skin removed. Place it in a plate.
Lightly season both sides with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper.
Then lightly dust both sides with flour.
Pour in two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large non-stick skillet, turn up the heat to high, but not smoking hot.
Carefully place the fillets in the skillet, make sure not to crowd the skillet, allowing room on the sides of the fish. Let cook for 4 to 5 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish). Don’t touch, shift, stir or move around.
The bottom should have a nice brown crust. Carefully turn the halibut over to the opposite side. Cook for another 4 to 5 minutes.
Remove to a platter. You can add a drizzle of fresh lemon if you’d like. That’s it! Simple, fresh, and tasty
