Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge)

Most fish can be grilled to perfection over a fairly hot fire. Moist, fresh halibut, in particular, stands up well to medium-high heat, which sears the surface and cooks the flesh through. If there is any sticking when you turn the fish, recoat the grill rack with cooking spray.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine first 3 ingredients; rub over halibut fillets. Cover and let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. Sprinkle fish with salt.

Step 3

Place fish on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.

The doneness of the fish was right on, seared in the juices. I will cut back on the pepper, a bit to much for our taste.

Very good, but too much pepper for our tastes. Next time I will probably use about 1/2 the rub.

I am always looking for new ways to prepare halibut since we relocated to Seattle and this one is a keeper--very easy and delicious. I had it with a slice of lemon and my husband wanted a sauce for his. I made a quick remoulade of light sour cream, canola mayo, finely grated lemon peel, a squeeze of lemon juice and a dash of cayenne pepper which he liked. I served the halibut with Creamy Parm Orzo (a CL recipe) and a saute of red and yellow peppers, garlic and zucchini. A great meal and I would definitely serve to guests!

Good recipe but I agree with melman, it needed something else.

Couldn't believe how good this was with so few ingredients! Enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Used less pepper than recommended because had less halibut, and thought would be too peppery, but was delicious. Would serve for company. Served with steamed brussel sprouts, corn on cob, and mashed sweet potatoes with cinnamon.

I used MahiMahi and Ahi and this was fantastic! I can't wait to try it with some Opah. It's perfect for just a quick dinner and last minute guests. Served it with a red cabbage slaw and baby reds.

It was very good but it was not the best halibut I have every had. The pepper was good but I thought it needed more flavor and would have liked to add something to kick it up a notch.
