Grilled Halibut Fillet Recipe
Do you need a fast and easy meal for busy camp weekends? Try grilling seafood! Mine is one of the easiest grilled halibut fillet recipes of all time but don’t let the simplicity of this recipe discourage you from trying it … The bold Asian inspired flavors hit this one out of the ballpark! Slather a little basting sauce on the fish, toss it on the grill, flip it and eat. It really is ready in mere minutes! The ease of this healthy main course is a beautiful thing. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.
You can grill many types of fish but I really like halibut because it is readily available and relatively inexpensive. Halibut is firm enough for grilling but flakey, tender and mild enough to take on the flavor profile you add during cooking. The simple basting sauce adds a bit of sweet and heat to make it interesting and a punch of fresh herbs finishes this easy grilled halibut recipe off perfectly. Here’s how you make it, serves 4:
