Ingredients


    4 (1 1/4-inch-thick) pieces white-fleshed skinless fish fillets, such as halibut (6 oz each)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    4 very thin lemon slices
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1/3 cup pitted brine-cured green olives such as picholine, halved lengthwise (2 oz)
    1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano or 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled

Directions


Put oven rack in upper third of oven and preheat oven to 450F.

Pat fish dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sear fillets, skinned sides down, until browned well, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer, seared sides up, to baking dish (reserve skillet), then top each fillet with a slice of lemon.

Add wine to skillet and bring to a boil, scraping up any brown bits. Boil 30 seconds, then pour around fish. Scatter olives around fish and bake, uncovered, until fish is just cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.

Transfer fish to a platter, then whisk lemon juice, oregano, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil into cooking liquid in baking dish. Season sauce with salt and pepper and spoon over fish,
