I like to poach it because it is almost impossible to overcook it and make it too dry. I usually put one can of rotel and a 1/3 cup of white wine in a pan with the fish and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve on a bed of brown rice.

Agree with Heeper. Halibut is very flavorful and doesn't need a lot of help, and roasting is a healthy way of cooking fish without much fat or calories. Try roasting salmon with some lemon, salt and pepper.

You could put the fish in parchment paper tucking your lemon and herbs under and/or on top of the fish. The fish will steam in the packet and you won't have to use any oil at all. Here's a "how to" link to Martha Stewart's website.

Thanks! I got a 8oz filet. I will do as you suggested and pan fry it with a pinch of olive oil, dill and lemon. That sounds yummy! Now I have to decide on what sides I want. Oh, I can't wait for dinner!

Halibut is a great fish! Good choice! Is it a whole fish or is it fillets?

If it's a whole fish, you can roast the whole thing in the oven until it's flaky - I usually put some lemon slices in the body cavity, which add a delicious (but not overpowering) lemon flavor to the fish.

If it's fillets, you can pan fry it (just use a little oil to help keep it from sticking), and just season with salt and pepper - it's very nice just like that.

If you're looking for something snazzier, allrecipes has a bunch of "favorite halibut recipes"... but I tend to like hallibut made simply.

I am buying halibut from Whole Foods today, and I have never boughten or made fish, only frozen fish chips. lol

Anyway, what is the best method and topping to put on Halibut? I am thinking of baking the fish or cooking it in a frying pan, but I want to avoid oils, I want to be healthy. So please any advice, or help you can give would be appreciated!

Please help!
