  • Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, melt the butter in the oil. Add the fennel and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until browned, about 8 minutes. Add the orange juice and zest. Set the halibut on the fennel; season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until the fish is just cooked through, 8 minutes.

  • Transfer the halibut to plates. Toss the potatoes with the fennel, sprinkle with the tarragon and serve with the fish.
