Pan-Seared Halibut with Spicy Mint-Lemon Sauce

This simple technique for cooking fish starts by searing the fillets, then flips them and lets them finish cooking off the burner in the pan's residual heat. Lean, mild-tasting halibut is a blank canvas for a sauce inspired by Georgian green adjika, a garlicky chili-herb condiment. The freshness of the mint and lemon and the fruitiness of the olive oil give the dish richness without overwhelming the halibut's delicate flavor.

Tip

Don't fuss with the halibut fillets once they're in the skillet. Allow them to cook undisturbed so they develop a deep, golden-brown crust. And while the fillets finish cooking in the residual heat, keep the pan covered for at least a full 2 minutes to prevent loss of heat.
