Season with garlic powder after adding the herbs. add onion, making sure to evenly distribute in the skillet. After adding onion, cover skillet without venting and reduce heat to low (1 1/2- 2 1/2). Let flavors condense for 2-2 1/2 minutes. Uncover, remove rosemary and finish Halibut to a flaky edge. This fish should NOT fall apart, but will be white and flaky around its circumference.
