Pat dry the halibut fillet and season with 1/4 tsp Kosher salt. Place into a plastic bag.

Finishing Steps - Lemon Buerre Blanc Sauce
Heat a small sauce pan on high heat, add red onion, white wine, and lemon juice.
Bring to a boil and reduce the sauce, stirring occasionally until the volume has reduced to about 1/8 cup.
Reduce heat to low and slowly whisk in butter, one cube at a time. As the butter melts, the sauce should thicken and look smooth with a pale pink hue.
Season with 1/4 tsp salt. Keep warm and whisk occasionally until ready to serve.
Spoon sauce over the top of the halibut fillets. Ready to serve.
