Roasted Halibut with Artichokes and Lemon


2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
4 halibut fillets, about 6 oz (175 g) each
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups (500 mL) artichoke hearts, quartered
1 tbsp (15 mL) capers, drained
8 lemon slices, cut crosswise through the lemon as thinly as possible
2 tsp (10 mL) fresh oregano, finely chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) unsalted butter
