Here, a simple mixture of mayonnaise, mustard, capers, lemon zest and parsley has been spread atop the fillets before cooking. It browns beautifully under the broiler, creating a thin, tasty crust. The fish needs nothing more than a squeeze of lemon upon serving!

Season the Halibut Fillets (4) with Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Spread the mayonnaise mixture evenly over each of the fillets.
Step 4
In a large skillet set over high heat, pour in the Grapeseed Oil (2 Tbsp) . When the oil begins to shimmer or is nearly smoking, carefully lower the fillets into the oil, and immediately transfer the skillet to the oven. Cook for 4-5 minutes.
