Delicious Grilled Halibut Recipe
Grilled Honey, Lemon Halibut Recipe
There is nothing quite like catching wild fish, preparing it on your own and enjoying for months after a fishing trip. One of the best eating fish and my favorite to make is wild caught Pacific Halibut. Every summer many tourists and anglers flock to Alaska to fill their freezers for the year with fresh halibut and salmon. Halibut is a mild flavored fish and can be made a variety of ways. This is healthy white flaky meat that is full of omega 3 fatty acids and high in protein.
One of the most important things to remember when cooking any fish is to not overcook the meat. Halibut especially can dry out quickly when over cooked and become rubbery and inedible. Below is one of my favorite ways to grill fresh halibut. This recipe can be used on cod and rockfish as well!
What you need for this recipe:
Small mixing bowl
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons honey
1/2-tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1-teaspoon black pepper
½ tablespoon minced garlic
1 pound of fresh halibut
- Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl.
- Portion your halibut fillets in 3-6 ounce pieces. You will want your fillets about an inch and a half thick. Any thicker and the halibut will dry out on the outside and be undone on the inside. Roll fillets in the mixture and set aside.
- Bring pan or grill to high heat. Sear halibut for about 90- seconds per side, turn down heat and cook an additional 1-2 minutes per side. Fish is done when it flakes apart with a fork.
- Serve with a drop of extra lemon juice if desired.
On our halibut trips you can expect to go home with 50-100 pounds of fresh halibut and salmon processed and packaged! That constitutes to numerous meals and memories shared with family and friends over the winter.
