Halibut on the Grill

We were so fortunate to have a place with a kitchen that was obviously designed by somebody who loved to cook! How can one stay in a lovely home with a Wolf stove/oven and not cook?!


Our first evening on the island was one filled with great food and wine! We had three pounds of halibut, fresh string beans and rice.

The halibut was marinated in equal parts of olive oil and white wine, with some lemon juice, soy and garlic. The Kitchen Gnome is not known for measuring but he was able to give me proportions.

Halibut on the Grill

3 pounds halibut filets
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup lemon juice
3 large cloves garlic
Chopped flat leaf parsley

Set the grill for 350 degrees.

1. Salt and pepper the fish.

2. Mix the first five ingredients and spoon it over the fish.

3. Sprinkle the chopped parsley over the fish.

4. Marinate for about 20 to 30 minutes.

5. The halibut is then placed skin side down on a piece of foil that has a few holes poked in it so that the juices do not collect. What happens is that the skin sticks to the foil and the fish is easily removed and served.

6. Tent the halibut once it is on the grill.

7. Cooking the halibut to the correct doneness is dependent upon the grill, how hot it is out side! and the thickness of the halibut! Cook the halibut until the largest piece flakes n the center and there are no transparent spots. Remove from the grill immediately.

  2. I adore Halibut. I have never had it til I moved up here 6 years ago. Now I would have to say its definitely a favorite. Love the buttery taste. My husband is not a fish lover so I mainly eat it when we go out, but sometimes I buy a filet just for me. Yours looks great.

  3. Now, there's a tempting recipe! Halibut is a bargain right now, so I will definitely try it this week and use my grill for the first time this summer. Thanks for the inspiration!
