To make halibut crispy sear, heat oil in a pan until it’s hot but not smoking. Season the halibut with salt and pepper and add it to the pan, skin-side down. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the skin is golden and crispy, then flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the fish is cooked.
Should You Soak Halibut Before Cooking?
