Pan Fried Halibut...A really quick and easy way to do your fillet of fish. A really simple recipe....

I usually BBQ my fish but, when I don't have time to heat up the grill I opt for this version. The trick is to leave the fish to cook on one side for a few minutes without constantly turning and moving it. You want the fish to get a carmel color and seal in the juices before you turn it on the second side. Cooking it with a mixture of butter/olive oil also gives it the golden color.


1 can salmon; (or mahi mahi or any other fish)
2 tsp fresh dill; (I used 1 tsp dried)
salt and pepper; to taste
garlic; Chopped, minced (optional) ( I didn't use in this recipe)
olive oil/butter
1 wedge lemon

Original recipe makes 1



Rinse fish under cold water and pat dry. Coat fish with some olive oil. Sprinkle kosher salt , pepper and dill on both sides of fish. Let rest for about 20 minutes.

Heat frying pan to high and add about 1 TBS olive oil.

Add fish fillet and lower heat to medium. It is at this point you can add 2 tsp butter to the pan (optional). Cook fish for about 3-4 minutes on one side depending on the thickness.

Turn fish over and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily. Squeeze some lemon over the fish.
