step-by-step directions
  • Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.
  • Season the halibut fillets on both sides with salt. 
  • In a cold nonstick, ovenproof sauté pan that can hold all four fillets, pour in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. 
  • Put the fish in the pan and rub the top of the fillets with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. 
  • Slide the pan into the oven and cook the fish until it reaches an internal temperature of 130 to 140 degrees F and flakes easily when prodded with a fork, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • A few minutes after you put the fish in the oven, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a medium saucepan over high heat. 
  • When the butter is hot and foaming, add the lemon slices and cook them until they begin to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes. 
  • Flip the lemons and  add the sliced almonds and caperberries, and sauté  for 30 seconds. 
  • Add the shallots and sauté for another 30 seconds. 
  • Add the ramps, peas, parsley and the remaining 2 tablespoons butter. 
  • Continue to cook until the lemons soften and the almonds and butter brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Place the halibut filets on warm plates or a warm serving platter and spoon the sauce with ramps and springs peas over them.
