Prepare the halibut fillets for the broiler a few hours ahead of time for an easy fuss-free dinner.


  • 4 halibut fillets, about 6 to 8 ounces each
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • lemon slices
  • parsley leaves


Place halibut fillets skin side down on greased baking pan or greased rack of broiler pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan, combine butter, garlic, and herbs. Heat over low heat until butter is melted and garlic is softened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon butter mixture over each fillet. If making ahead, cover the pan and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until ready to cook.

Heat broiler. Broil halibut for about 10 minutes, or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork. Garnish with parsley leaves and lemon slices, if desired.
Serves 4.

excellent and easy, Member fabiocole

This is a winner. I love halibut though it is often difficult for me to find so when I do find it, I want to prepare it in such a way that shows off the fish. This recipe does.
