Grilled Halibut

Are you tired of overcooked, flavorless fish? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with this mouthwatering grilled halibut recipe! Whether you prefer grilling outdoors or using your stovetop, this healthy and delicious meal will be ready in just minutes. Say goodbye to boring fish and get ready to savor the delicate flavors of halibut with a touch of honey and lemon.

The Secret To Perfectly Cooked Fish

The key to a delicious fish is simple – do not overcook it. As soon as it can be flaked with a fork and turns white, it’s done! This marinade works well with various types of fish, but we’re head over heels for halibut. Its mild flavor perfectly complements the delicate taste of the fish. For an extra burst of acidity, spritz it with some additional lemon juice.

Why Halibut is a Great Choice

Not only is halibut incredibly tasty, but it’s also a healthy addition to your diet. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, this fish is a nutritious choice for those looking to eat well. When it comes to sustainability, opt for Pacific Halibut instead of Atlantic Wild Caught Halibut, which is on the do not eat list due to depleted stocks.

Explore Other Fish Options

If halibut isn’t your preferred choice, don’t worry! You can easily substitute it with other oily white fish such as fluke, flounder, turbot, or even cod and striped bass for halibut steaks. The marinade works well with all these options, so you can still enjoy a fantastic meal.

Tips for Buying Fish

When purchasing fish, like halibut, always trust your nose. It should not have a fishy or ocean-like smell. That’s how you can determine if it’s fresh. If you’re buying frozen fish, make sure to consume it as soon as it’s thawed for best taste and texture.

Grilling Options: Outdoor or Indoor?

This recipe offers versatility, allowing you to cook your halibut on either an outdoor gas grill or indoors using a grill pan. If you don’t have a grill pan, don’t worry. You can still achieve the same delicious results using a regular large heavy skillet on your stovetop. The choice is yours!
