Barbeque Halibut

grilled barbecued halibutThis is a great recipe and is among the favorites at our house.The soy sauce, brown sugar and the garlic caramelize on the fish making for a great taste that goes well with the halibut.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2-4


2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
halibut fillets

Place  butter, brown sugar, minced garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, and pepper in a  small saucepan. Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is completely dissolved. Dip fish in mixture and place on medium-temp grill or under broiler. Baste with remaining liquid while cooking. Cook 5 minutes on each side until fish flakes easily.

*We started using this recipe outdoors on the grill but now, just as often, it is done indoors under the broiler with the same great results. Give it a try!

Great eats,

Breaded Baked Halibut Recipe

Breaded baked Alaskan halibut recipeThis recipe is another one that is always welcomed here at our house. It works great with halibut, cod, lingcod, rockfish, sheefish, or just about any other white-meated fish fillets. It prepares and cooks very quickly and easily for those times when dinner is “in a hurry.”

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Serves: 4-8



2-4 fish fillets cut in 1 1/2 inch squares or strips (halibut, cod, sheefish, rockfish, etc.)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 cup bread crumbs, plain or Italian flavored
1/2 cup olive oil OR  melted butter
1-2 teaspoons sliced or minced garlic


Put oil, parmesan, and bread crumbs in three separate bowls. Add garlic to oil bowl. Dip each piece if fish in oil, parmesan, and bread crumbs in that order. Place breaded fish on a baking sheet so that they don’t touch each other. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper if desired. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 450F until golden brown. Do not overcook. Fish is done when is breaks easily and is firm and white through.

Serve with Homemade Tartar Sauce, lemon juice or wedges, malt vinegar, or your own favorite dip or topping.

*The purpose of the garlic is to give the oil or butter a garlicky flavor. Personally we use Garlic-Infused Canola Oil from our local Pampered Chef  lady and it tastes great!
