    Depending on how your cooking it but when you see a golden brown crispy color and if you want to be very sure wait until its brown or almost brown and you can stick a thermometer in it to be really sure something to serve on the side would be green vegetables and maybe a small salad. big_smile

    depends on how 'done' you want - i like it to be still a bit translucent.

    if poaching , baking, etc, gently stick a fork in the thickest part and look at the meat - if it flakes easily it's done; otherwise you can see just how undone it is, and go from there


    here's a recipe that's great for halibut too

    If you are frying a piece like the one in your photo, I'd say around seven minutes on each side at about 350. I can't really tell the thickness but fish cooks faster than any other meat. I love Halibut! Rainbow Trout is also another great tasting fresh water fish.
