This is one of my favorite times of year…the halibut are running! A firm, flaky, moist fish, it is my favorite lunch or light dinner over a plate of well seasoned greens. I bought mine (caught wild) at Costco. It’s not particularly cheap, but when I break it out over a per person serving, I’m totally willing to pay $3-4 per portion for excellent fish.
Speaking of fish, Carl Safina‘s group, Blue Ocean Institute not only offers great information about our oceans and seas but acts as their advocate as well. If you want to make sure that the fish you are buying are sustainable and abundant, Blue Ocean’s online guide will point you in the right direction.

- Over medium high heat, melt butter and oil in heavy duty skillet (I love cast iron for this).
- Lightly dredge fillets in rice flour, shaking off excess.
- Once butter and oil are foamy, place fillets into skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes per side at most.
- Plate onto a bed of lettuce doused with Dill Vinaigrette, adding any vegetables you desire.
