Method

Place a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. 

When very hot, add lemons cut-side down. 

Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. 

When lemons just begin to brown, about 3 minutes, push them to one side of the skillet and add oil and fish.

Cook until fish is browned and just opaque in the center, about 4 minutes per side, lowering heat if lemons and fish brown too quickly. 

Transfer fish to a platter and lemons to a cutting board.

Place the skillet over low heat and add shallot. 

Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. 

Stir in wine and cook for 1 minute. 

Squeeze 2 lemon halves through a strainer into the skillet. 

Remove from heat and swirl in butter. Stir in thyme and pour sauce over fish. 

Cut remaining lemon halves into wedges and serve with fish.
