Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.
  2. Coat with cornstarch the halibut steaks.
  3. Heat the butter and oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté the steaks, 1-2 min per side to colour them.
  4. Transfer the fish to an ovenproof dish. Press half the oranges and pour in the juice over the halibut. Cut the remaining oranges into rounds to cover the halibut. Keep some to decorate the serving dish later. Add salt and pepper.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven about 12 min. Check with a fork to see if it is cooked through.
  6. Serve on the warmed plates. Sprinkle with the cooking liquid. Garnish with the remaining orange rounds.
