Another fantastic fish recipe. This was crazy easy and quick to make and was perfect after a hot race day! I used this recipe, but tweaked it to our liking and what we had on hand!
Ingredients: (serves 4, I cut in half)
plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
fresh flat-leaf parsley
kosher salt and black pepper
6-ounce pieces skinless halibut fillet or some other firm-fleshed white fish
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the lemon juice, parsley, capers, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and simmer until the tomatoes begin to break down, 4 to 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Season the fish with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook until opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
Add lemon sauce over fish and serve immediately.
