Why You’ll Love Halibut Beurre Blanc

This fish is amazing. Beurre blanc is one of my favorite sauces of all time, and it goes perfectly with halibut. It is creamy, rich, buttery and it has a kick of acid which is very important. Honey doesn’t normally go in there, but I love the balance it creates.

How To Prepare Halibut Beurre Blanc

🧂 First, preheat a pan on high for 2 minutes. Add in some olive oil and after 30 seconds, add in your salted fish. Then, sear on medium high for 4-5 minutes, flip over. Sear for 1-2 minutes. Cover, turn heat off and let it rest for 2 minutes.

🍷 Secondly, to a saucepan add your shallot, vinegar and wine. Then, bring to a simmer and reduce to 1/3. It should be almost all absorbed by the shallot. Add in honey.

🧈 Off heat add your cold butter, 2 tbsp at a time and emulsify. Add more butter if you want it creamier.

🐟 Lastly, serve the fish over it, top it with black pepper and micro arugula.
