Pan Grilled Halibut
Fabulous Served with a Green Salad

Serves 4

4 - 6 ounce halibut fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh parsley

Pat fish dry, and sprinkle both sides with black pepper and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle with flour. Melt 1 1/2 teaspoons butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fish to pan, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Carefully turn fish over; cook 4 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; set aside, and keep warm.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to pan, and cook 1 minute or until lightly browned, swirling pan to melt butter evenly and prevent burning. Remove pan from heat; stir in juice. Drizzle juice mixture over fish. Sprinkle fish with remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and more parsley if desired. Serve immediately.
