Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 25 min
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 4 medium leeks, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp butter (or non-dairy alternative)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 c dry white wine (or 1 c low-sodium chicken stock + one Tbsp lemon juice)
  • 2 c spring peas
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 (8 oz) halibut fillets

Directions

For the Leeks and Peas

In a large saut√© pan over medium heat, melt butter and 1 tablespoon oil. Soften leeks for 12-15 minutes. Add white wine and simmer for another 5 minutes. Stir in spring peas and simmer until just cooked, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. 

For the Halibut

In a large (preferably non-stick) skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Season halibut fillets with salt and pepper on either side. Place halibut fillets in the pan and cook undisturbed until the fish is browned on one side, approximately 4 minutes. Flip and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the other side is browned and fish is just beginning to flake. 

Plating

Place halibut over leeks and peas to serve.
