*GREAT SUMMER RECIPE* Pan-Roasted Halibut with Chipotle-Lime Butter

We tried this for the first time tonight, it was DELICIOUS, inexpensive, quick, and a perfect summer flavor. I could not find Halibut on Peapod so I substituted Haddock. This recipe reminds me of my Mom and Dad, I think they would love it with a nice cold Corona and Heinekein, respectively. I served it with nice cold watermelon, whole wheat rice pilaf, and locally grown corn (the recipe book recommends a fresh baguette and a big green salad with tomatoes as sides).
COOKING METHOD: Stovetop and Oven
PREP TIME: 10 mins
COOK TIME: About 10 mins
Chipotle-Lime Butter
(2) small cloves garlic
(1) lime- strips of zest and juice
(2) small chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
(2 tbl) fresh cilantro leaves
(1 stick) organic butter, softened
(2 tbl) lime juice
(2 tsp) honey
(1 tsp) salt
Halibut or haddock
Salt and fresh ground black or white pepper
(4 tbl) e.v.o.o.
1.) Preheat oven 400F
2.) Mix together garlic and lime zest. Add chiles and cilantro. Add butter, lime juice, honey, and salt- mix well (Do not over process, the butter should be fluffy) Set aside
3.) Sprinkle both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. Add e.v.o.o. to pan, heat on high heat til very hot. Turn down heat to med high and add fish- Sear 2-3 mins - do not touch filets. Sear both sides.
4.) Use a cookie sheet, spray with nonstick (I used aluminium foil too for easy clean up) put fish on cookie sheet. Divide chipotle butter evenly among fish pieces. BAKE 7 mins or until fish loses its transparency (Butter will act as glaze) SERVE IMMEDIATELY
