Pan-Seared Halibut with Lemon-Herb Mayonnaise
This recipe serves: 4  
1/4 cup fat free mayonnaise
zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 teaspoons finely chopped tarragon
2 teaspoons finely chopped shallots
4 halibut fillets, about 6 ounces each
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Cooking Instructions
1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, tarragon and shallots. (This can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator.)

2. Season the halibut fillets with salt and pepper.

3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the halibut fillets and sear the fillets for 4 to 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the fillets. (Thinner fillets will take less time, while thicker fillets will need more cooking time.)

4. Serve each fillet with a dollop of lemon-herb mayonnaise.

Serving Size: 1 fillet of halibut with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
