This is delicious, and I have made it many times since. We have used many types of fish as well as halibut, which I prefer.

After reading the reviews about the grill catching fire, I decided to put the fish on non stick Reynolds wrap. I folded up all the corners and got an excellent crisp with all the flavor grilled in. My husband and I agree it was the best prepared halibut we've had! I too put the grill to high for 5 min then cooked one side on medium and then down to low. Read More

I found this very hard to BBQ on the grill. The butter would cause flames when I tried to flip the fish over and could only cook on one side. But the flavour was pretty good. Read More

I used an air cooker instead of grilling --- always too afraid they will fall apart. In lieu of the individual spices, I used Costco's salt free blend of spices. Read More

We tried this recipe and thought it was great, the seasonings were enough to taste but not overwhelm the mild fish. I did as one person suggested and made a container out of foil, sprayed lightly with pam. Leaving the foil open at the top you still get the outdoor flavor without having the fish fall apart.

Awesome flavored. I've made this a number of times and the only change was to reduce the butter by half and pan fry. Perfect! Read More

Made this with Alaskan frozen cod fillets tonight in the oven at 450 for about 20 minutes. They were thinner fillets; maybe an inch tapering down to a quarter of an inch. I doubled it for 6, but it would have been fine without the doubling. Fantastic recipe! All seven of us liked it, from ages 2 to 39, and the oldest one is the pickiest with fish recipes. He said it was pretty good. I will make this again for sure. Read More

Absolutely fab!!! We fish halibut and salmon every year and always looking for new recipes and modes of prep. For this recipe I used grilling sheets so there was no flare up, no mess, easy to clean. Fish was absolutely perfect! Read More

Ok. The seasoning is spot on. Using butter on a mid-high grill is tricky. Recommend lower the grill to low to cook off some of the butter and then raising the the temp to high. Delicious! Read More
