Grilled Halibut Steak Marinade Recipe

Not only is this recipe good on halibut and other fish such as sturgeon, salmon, swordfish, flounder, and tilapia, it is also good on beef, chicken, and pork. Totally versatile and oh so yummy! Great for those summer night barbeques! (Recipe can also be transferred to oven to be used in weather not good enough for a BBQ.) Recipes this good don't come along every day!


1 lb halibut steak
4 T butter
4 T brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
4 tsp lite soy sauce
1 tsp ground black pepper

In a saucepan over medium heat, add butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, soy sauce, and black pepper. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved.

Add half of the mixture to a plastic zippered storage bag and marinate fish (or meat) in it for an hour. With other half of mixture, separate 2 tablespoons into a bowl to use for drizzling once fish has been prepared. Remaining reserve will be used for basting fish while grilling.

After the fish has marinated for an hour, preheat grill to medium high. When ready, lightly oil grill. Add fish to grill and baste with sauce by brushing. Cook for 5 minutes on each side or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.

Remove from grill when done. Drizzle with sauce that was held back and serve. Delicious!

Note: Marinating tenderizes the meat and gives it more flavor — it's especially important with this recipe not to skip that step!

Additional notes:
Firm, meaty textured fish like halibut, salmon, swordfish, and tuna are usually best for grilling.
Warm serving plates to keep fish from cooling too quickly.
