Grilled Halibut Recipe with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce

Grilled Halibut

Sometimes it seems like fish can be tricky to prepare and cook, but the truth is, much like this Grilled Halibut Recipe, it really couldn’t be easier.  You need to keep your fish Moist so it doesn’t taste dry and you need to have some flavor.  Simple enough, right?  So how do we do that?  Well there’s several different ways to go about it.  You can wrap your fish, Steam it or coat with Olive oil.  Are you following me?  Now it’s down to the flavor.  The best thing to do with any fish is stick with the basics first; salt and pepper, and if you need a lift or some kick, then we’re talking some Cayenne or Paprika etc.  From there the sky’s the limit because the fusion of flavor could mean anything.  In this recipe we’re going to take a fresh approach.  A little bit of Garlic, some fresh herbs, some Oyster Mushrooms, White Wine and a full squeeze of a Lemon.  Oh I almost forgot Bacon!

Grilled Halibut Ingredients:

2-3 Halibut Steaks
Olive Oil, for the Steaks
Salt and Pepper, Pinch
Paprika, Dash
2 tbsp Olive Oil, for Cooking
1 tbsp Butter

Topping
1 cup Oyster Mushrooms
2 Green Onions, chopped into Scallions
1 tbsp Parsley, freshly Chopped
4 oz Bacon, sliced (optional)

Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce
1/2 cup Water
3 tbsp Butter
1 Lemon, squeezed
1/4 cup White Wine
1/2 tsp Garlic, minced or chopped
1/4 tsp Chili Flakes

Prepare and Cut all Vegetables and Bacon.  Coat halibut with Olive Oil, both sides then season with Salt and Pepper and Paprika.  Grill on Medium high heat 3 to 4 minutes per side.  Cook the bacon and strain onto paper towels.  In a hot pan add Olive Oil and Butter and Saute the Oyster mushrooms for 5 Minutes.  Reduce heat to Low and add all Garlic Lemon butter Sauce ingredients, plus the Scallions, Fresh Parsley and bacon. Stir constantly until sauce gets smooth.  Serve Vegetables and Sauce over the top of Halibut.

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
