Recipe by Chef John
"Mushrooms and halibut have a natural affinity for each other, and both are wonderful with the lemon-parsley butter sauce. So, whether you fear cooking fish or not, I hope you give this super simple yet fabulous recipe a try soon."

You can't go wrong with any recipe from Chef John. Recipe turned out great. My plate looked like restaurant quality (a fine one at that) and the taste was great and it was so simple to create! Will def use again maybe going with another reviewer's tip and using wine instead of water.
This is my first Chef John recipe that I was able to follow as it was really simple. I made it with a slight variation - did not have cayenne pepper and used paprika and did not have parsley so left it out but it was all good at the end and very surprised with the taste it gave. Only warning is that the mushroom while sautéing may release heaps and heaps of water and would affect cooking the fish - may need to consider sautéing the mushrooms until all the liquids have evaporated.
Tasty. We used white wine instead water and subbed cremini mushrooms. Served over rice.
Made this last night for my family. Ingredients pretty easy to find although clamshell mushrooms very expensive, i used chanterelles and oyster varieties for 1/3 the price. recipe very easy to follow. everybody loved it! the sauce was excellent and very light. added this to my recipe box for sure. served with some simple sauteed snap peas and some fresh boule bread. this was an easy winner. would be a great idea for a special family dinner when prep time is an issue.
thanks for the very nice recipe chef John
This was fantastic. I did not use the cayenne (family members are not fans of hot/spicy) and I used white wine instead of the suggested water to deglaze the pan for the sauce. I will definitely make it again! The reviewer who mentioned having everything prepared before beginning was spot on. Made the process so much better!
Outstanding. I doubled sauce, used white wine instead of water. Served it over rice. Lightly coat fish with flour before frying to give it a little more crust.
My first try of a Chef John recipe. Very easy to follow. Helps to have everything ready before starting. Goes fast. Tasted great, will do again.
I have always loved fish but this recipe put it over the top!! I am always up to trying Chef John's recipes as they usually don't call for too many ingredients & are easy to follow. Made this with white mushrooms as that is what I had on hand and served it with Brocollini & tri-color couscous what a great meal. I'm ready to eat halibut everyday!! Thanks Chef John
