To prepare this delicious meal, you will need halibut, oil for coating the fish, butter, minced shallot, minced garlic, dry white wine, lemon, lemon juice, and rinsed capers. You should get minced fresh mint leaves, kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, red chili flakes, extra mint, and lemon wedges in place.
Start by coating the fish with oil, season it with salt and pepper, then transfer it to an oven-safe dish and set aside. On medium-high heat, add butter and heat it a little. Once that is done, add the minced shallot or minced onion (depending on your choice), and garlic. Cook everything together until the shallot and garlic become tender. Once they become tender, add wine, lemon zest, and juice.
Heat and simmer the sauce for about 2-5 minutes or until the sauce reduce to your desired concentration and texture. Now, add your mint, salt, capers, and pepper to taste. Do you remember we told you red chili flakes are optional? If you want to make use of them, add it at this point.
While the sauce is simmering, prepare your fish. To make your fish, heat your oven to a temperature of about 500ºF. Then broil the fish on the top oven rack for about 6-8 minutes, or until the fish can be easily flaked with a fork.
