Halibut with Parsley-Lemon Sauce

FOOD & WINE Wine Club Halibut with Parsley-Lemon Sauce FOOD & WINE Wine Club Halibut with Parsley-Lemon Sauce
A creamy, vivid parsley sauce is delicious with white fish like halibut.
Servings: 4
Total Time: 40 minutes
PAIR WITH:
Ingredients
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 large shallots, thinly sliced
1 cup water
½ cup heavy cream
4 cups loosely packed parsley
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Four ½-inch-thick halibut steaks (1½ pounds)
Directions
1. In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the water and simmer until reduced by half, about 6 minutes. Add the cream and simmer until reduced by one-third, about 6 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

2. Stir the parsley into the saucepan. Transfer the sauce to a blender and coarsely puree. Return the sauce to the saucepan. Stir in the lemon juice, season the sauce with salt and pepper and keep warm.

3. In each of 2 large nonstick skillets, heat 1 tablespoon of the remaining oil until shimmering. Season the halibut with salt and pepper and cook over high heat, turning once, until browned and just cooked, about 4 minutes. Transfer the halibut to plates. -Marcia Kiesel
