Pan-fried Halibut Recipe With Creamy Lemon Garlic Sauce Is Ready in Less Than 15 Minutes

Chopping the garlic is the only prep for this easy halibut recipe. The creamy, lemony sauce adds a luscious punch of flavor to this popular white fish. Add a vegetable and dinner is done.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 12 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 2 halibut filets
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons flour (divided)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
