BBQ Glazed Halibut

We bought halibut the other night, and I found this recipe. I was unsure of what to expect, but it tasted really light and flavorful. The sauce is sort of a Teriyaki flavor.

BBQ Glazed Halibut


2 halibut steaks
2 green onions, chopped

In a saucepan, combine following ingredients:

2 T. butter
2 T. brown sugar
2 cloves garlic
1 T. lemon juice
2 tsp. soy sauce
1/2 tsp. pepper

Stir ingredients and cook on med-high heat just until it comes to a boil, and sugar is dissolved.
Cool to room temperature.

Keep about 4 T. sauce in the pan to use for glaze later.

In a shallow pan, marinate halibut in the sauce in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes, flip halibut over and place back in fridge for another 15 minutes.

Remove from fridge and place on grill prepped with olive oil. Carefully place halibut on the grill, and use the extra saute sauce left in the saute pan to keep it moist while cooking. I cooked mine about 4 minutes on each side, but it varies depending on how you like it prepared.

Remove from grill and glaze with the extra sauce, and top with chopped green onions. Enjoy!


  1. This looks SO good! I want to try it out. Just for clarification, are you supposed to saute the halibut in all the sauce minus the 4 T. and then stick it in the refrigerator? I have to visualize everything before I do it, one of my lovely quirks.... so I'm thinking you just kind of pan sear the fish then stick it in the fridge after it cools a little bit. Is that right?

  2. Yeah, put the extra 4 T. or so aside before you saute it, I just like extra sauce to glaze right before you serve it. You don't wanna glaze it with the sauce that the raw fish has been sitting in, so that's why you reserve it. I cooked mine on the BBQ so my house wouldn't smell like fish,, but you could just put it in a pan or skillet if you want. :) Does that answer your question?
