This is a quick and easy seared halibut dish, with a buttery wine and caper sauce. It takes hardly any time at all to make, but it is sure to leave a lasting impression on last minute guests.
"Capers and Halibut"--what an ordinary name for such an extraordinary dish! The pan roasted halibut becomes nicely golden brown and caramelized, while the sauce, although it includes no lemon juice, is inspired by that used in the classic Veal or Chicken Piccata. Simple to prepare, remarkably pretty presentation, with delicious results. I served this with rice, but a side of pasta with garlic and olive oil would also be a perfect complement. - 31 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Fantastic!! This was simple and delicious. I also made the "cheesy acorn squash" recipe from this site to go along with it and a nice white wine. My husband was in heaven! One thing... go easy on the caper juice-very salty. - 08 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Prior to making this recipe, I was not a huge fan of fish. Now, I am! Everyone LOVED it! As a side dish, I made all recipe's "Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf". The dishes complimented each other very nicely. Enjoy! - 29 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
