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.


What You'll Need

  • 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)

How to Make It

  1. Brush broiler rack with a little olive oil.
  2. Lightly sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine melted butter with garlic, chopped parsley, if using, and herb seasoning blend.
  4. Brush the fish fillets with the herb butter mixture.
  5. Place on broiler rack. Broil for about 10 to 14 minutes, depending on thickness, turning once about halfway through.
  6. Serve this halibut with potatoes or rice, spinach, or another green vegetable. If desired serve with a creamy sauce.

    The recipe is very easy to scale down for two. 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.
