Grilled Fish Steaks

Prep Time: 10 min. (+1 hour to marinate)
Cook Time: 10-20 min.
Servings: 2
Perfect Partners: Baked potato & salad.

I got this recipe from I've made it twice, and it is perfection! I followed the recipe exactly. Instead of grilling, I baked it in the middle rack of the oven at 450 for 10-15 minutes, turning halfway through. My oven cooks fast, so you may need to cook it 5 minutes longer. So easy & so good!

Another note: Sometimes I get lucky and find Halibut in the fresh fish section sold in "bits & pieces." It was sold for $4.99/lb. and it was every bit as good as the $14.99/lb. version.

1 clove garlic, minced
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh
2 (6 ounce) fillets halibut

1. In a stainless steel or glass bowl, combine garlic, olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and parsley.

2. Place the halibut filets in a shallow glass dish or a resealable plastic bag, and pour the marinade over the fish. Cover or seal and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate. Set grate 4 inches from the heat.

4. Remove halibut filets from marinade and drain off the excess. Grill filets 5 minutes per side or until fish is done when easily flaked with a fork.
