Halibut In White Wine

by Joanne on July 13, 2009

Recipes don’t get any easier than this one.  Make sure you purchase a really nice piece of fresh fish such as halibut with the skin on one side.  I used one large halibut fillet which was just over a pound.


Serves 2 to 3.

  • 2 TBS flour
  • 2 TBS Panko crumbs
  • Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper
  • 1 large Halibut Fillet (about 1.2 lbs) or 2 smaller thick fillets
  • 5 TBS olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 4 small garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 large scallions, chopped
  • 3 TBS fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 fresh lemon, sliced (optional)


Make sure you have everything chopped and ready to add as we go along. This recipe moves along quickly.

Preheat the oven to 450 F.  Mix the salt and pepper with the panko and flour on a large flat plate. Dredge the fish – skin side down in the mixture and shake of any excess.

Heat an oven proof pan over high heat. When hot, add the oil, give it about 30 seconds and add your fish – skin side down. Cook for about 3 minutes – depending on thickness, until you believe the skin has become golden in color. 

Turn the fish over. Pour your wine in very carefully, it will smoke. Add the garlic, scallions, parsley and remove from heat, going directly into the oven.  Cook uncovered for a 5 minutes, until it flakes easily with a fork.  Serve with sliced lemons.


You will LOVE this dish! 

Serve with yellow squash and green pepper rounds.

  • 1 yellow squash, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 green pepper, slice in rounds
  • salt and pepper
  • paprika
  • garlic powder
  • olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 F. Put prepared veggies into a foil lined baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with paprika and garlic powder. Cook for 15 – 20 minutes. Turn oven to broil for last 3 minutes.


If you have a recipe that gets any easier than the above, I’d love to hear about it.

We are off to the sports store so Ted can use his gift certificate. He is just too excited!  I have a feeling we will be getting more weights for our gym. Now I’m excited!

Good night, all. 🙂

          Wow this looks really good, it’s been ages since I’ve cooked fish. I really do love it when I take the time! This looks so easy it may have just swayed me. 🙂

          Plus the squash and green pepper looks too cute.
