This is a terrific dish I did a few months ago for TheKitchenHotline.com. You can substitute any fish, even salmon or tuna and it will still be amazing. I serve it with a Southwestern Pilaf. I’ll post that recipe as well.
- Yield: 4 servings
- Difficulty: Easy

- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 TBL canola oil
- Season the Halibut with salt, pepper, chili powder and lime zest.
- Heat a large pan to medium high and sauté each filet until brown on one side, roughly 7 minutes.
