Grilled Halibut is such a yummy and simple dish to create for your family. I’m thankful that my friend Sheri McShane – who is a contributor for MomGenerations.com and has her own blog: When the Kids Go to Bed. has shared her Grilled Halibut with us and it is absolutely exquisite and easy to make. I’m always trying to get more and more fish into my sons’ diets. This recipe truly takes the cake for the top winner for me!
How good does this look? Delish, right?
It’s finally grilling season! Nothing beats the smell of the grill going on a warm night. I’ve been trying to get my husband to eat more fish lately. He’s a steaky fish kind of guy. He’s not a fan of salmon or your typical white flaky fish. I personally like it all. Seriously. All of it. Being a New Englander, seafood is in my blood. So many people steer clear of it because they don’t know how or what to cook. I’m going to share with you my new favorite, Grilled Halibut.
Now I never had halibut growing up. I recently had it at a restaurant over a mound of delicious risotto and I was sold. I knew I had to have my husband try it. It has a dense, firm texture which makes it perfect for grilling.
How to make Grilled Halibut
Oil your grill grates with high heat non-stick spray or even olive oil and then preheat the grill to a medium heat.
Rub a little olive oil on the halibut fillets just to ensure they won’t stick to the grill, and it helps hold the seasoning. Salt & pepper both sides of the fillet. You can add some lemon pepper if you like. It compliments well, but just salt & pepper is perfectly fine.
For 1.5 inch fillets I grill it 4 minutes on each side. Make sure to use a large spatula when flipping so it doesn’t break apart.
