Halibut w/ Lemon Herb Butter

Posted by on Oct 27, 2013 | 2 comments


2 halibut fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
4 TBSP butter
2 large garlic cloves, crushed or finely minced
2 TBSP lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
1 tsp dried parsley (or 1/2 TBSP fresh)
pure salt and freshly ground pepper
lemon slices (optional)
fresh parsley leaves (optional)

  • Set broiler to high.
  • Place halibut fillets (skin side down if with skin) on buttered, broiler safe pan.
  • In a small saucepan, combine butter, garlic, lemon juice, and herbs.
  • Heat over low heat until butter is melted and garlic is softened, about 2 minutes.
  • Use roughly 1/2 of the butter mixture to spoon over each fillet and set the other half aside.
  • Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper.
  • Broil halibut for about 10 minutes (turning the fish once, halfway through), or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork (keep the remaining butter mixture over very low heat while fish is under the broiler to gently cook the garlic).
  • Drizzle the remaining butter sauce over the fish and garnish with parsley leaves and lemon slices, if desired.

Serves 2.
