I typically don't like fish but this is a recipe I'll make again. I thought it was a good very easy basic recipe. I added 1/2 tsp. sea salt and 1/2 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper to the marinade. Then I put the fish in a Ziploc bag poured in the marinade and shook gently to coat. The marinade had a good flavor but wasn't overpowering which I liked. Watch the cooking time--be sure that you get the center of the fish to at least 145 degrees. We had our gas grill preheated to medium heat and it took us about 8 minutes per side. Read More

I consider this a 'safe' recipe. No raves no boos. If I make this again I will use salt. This recipe lacks zest. I am not sure what spices it needs but it needs something to liven it up. Read More

This is one of the best ways of preparing halibut I have ever tried. I only marinated for an hour as the marinade really tenderizes the fish. My family raved about it! Read More

Salmon and Orange Roughy can be used in place of Halibut. Mango Salsa is excellent with this. Read More

This was just ok for me. I was really surprised because I love grilled fish and I love lime juice and herbs. It was the first time I've made halibut at home and I think I will stick with salmon. Read More

It was pretty good. I think I overcooked it though. I did it in the broiler for 10 minutes (1 inch thick fish) 5 minutes on each side. Next time I will do it on the grill. The flavors were okay nothing spectacular. I served with mango salsa which I love on its own anyway. Served with scalloped yellow squash. Read More
