  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a shallow baking dish.
  2. Rub halibut with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper. Place the fillets into the prepared baking dish, then press the coriander leaves onto the top of the halibut. Bake the halibut in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the spring onions, red pepper, garlic and crushed chillies until the vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in the white wine and season with dill and tarragon. Simmer for 2 minutes, then add the chicken stock, single cream, Parmesan cheese and remaining lemon juice; season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, then dissolve the flour into the water and stir into the boiling sauce. Return to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the halibut to serve.
