  • 1 lb green beans
  • 2 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 2 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ tbsp minced garlic

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.

  2. In a large bowl, combine green beans, 4 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet and roast 10 minutes.

  4. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining 2 tsp garlic and the shallots; cook 2 minutes. Whisk in white wine and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and cook 2 minutes, until slightly reduced. Remove from heat and stir in parsley. Transfer sauce to a bowl.

  5. Wipe the skillet clean and place over medium-high heat; add the remaining 4 tsp olive oil. When hot, add halibut and cook 4 minutes per side, or until flaking easily with a fork.

  6. Divide halibut and green beans onto plates. Spoon butter sauce over.
