Halibut fillets are absolutely delicious with an herb butter and a little garlic, or add a cream sauce or creamy crab sauce for an extra-special meal. Use your favorite herb or spice seasoning blend with the garlic.
- 4 halibut fillets (about 6 ounces each)
- salt to taste
- black pepper to taste
- 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
- 1 medium clove garlic (finely minced or pressed)
- Optional: 2 teaspoons parsley (freshly chopped)
- 1/2 teaspoon herb seasoning blend (or a few shakes, to taste)
Brush broiler rack with a little olive oil.
Lightly sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper.
Combine melted butter with garlic, chopped parsley, if using, and herb seasoning blend.
Brush the fish fillets with the herb butter mixture.
Place on broiler rack. Broil for about 10 to 14 minutes, depending on thickness, turning once about halfway through.
Serve this halibut with potatoes or rice, spinach, or another green vegetable. If desired, serve with a creamy sauce.
Glass Bakeware Warning
Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
The recipe is very easy to scale down for two people. Use 2 fillets, a small clove of garlic, about 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter, and 1 teaspoon of parsley along with a little less seasoning.
