  • Sear fish fillets. Season halibut with salt and pepper. Preheat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat with olive oil, and sear Halibut until golden brown. It takes 4-5 minutes on each side. Then take it off the heat and set it aside.
  • Fold the ingredients for the tartar-style sauce into puree and season to taste.

    Once the 2 sticks of cold butter turn into a paste, place the saucepan back on low heat and whisk the remaining butter (one stick at a time).
    Make sure the sauce emulsifies and doesn't break down
  • Take the sauce off the heat and mix in salt and pepper. Then fold in cliches as garnish. Your Pan Seared Halibut Gordon Ramsey Recipe is ready.
