Grilled Halibut Recipe

We love this simple and easy halibut recipe! Halibut is a firm white fish with a mild taste. Did you know it is not only a good source of high quality protein and omega 3 fatty acids, it also can provide more than one-third of your dietary needs for multiple vitamins and minerals? These nutrients include selenium, niacin, phosphorus, magnesium and vitamins B12 and B6.

Sea Breeze, Fish Market and Grill is the go-to restaurant for fresh delicious fish all year round! 




4 4-6 oz skinless halibut fillets (fresh is always best if possible!)

salt to taste

pepper to taste


Garlic Thyme Butter

3 cloves garlic cloves minced

4 T unsalted butter melted

1 T fresh thyme

juice of 1 whole lemon



  • Preheat your grill 375 degrees F (about 10 minutes).
  • Place the halibut fillet in a shallow baking dish. Combine all of the ingredients for the butter in a small bowl and pour over your halibut fillets.
  • Gently toss the fillet to ensure all sides are evenly coated in the butter. Season all sides with freshly cracked pepper and salt.
  • Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil. Pinch the paper towel between tongs and wipe it on the grates of your grill to prevent the halibut from sticking while it grills.
  • Place the seasoned halibut directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and grill for 5-7 minutes. Flip them, close the lid, and grill until the internal temperature of the halibut reads 145 degrees F. You’ll know the fish is done when it’s opaque and just starts to flake.
  • Remove the grilled halibut from the grill. Serve hot with lemon wedges.

  1. This compound garlic thyme butter is one of the best things I’ve tasted. So so so simple. I’d even recommend just combining the butter ingredients when the dairy is at room temperature. That allows you to shape it a bit better/easier so you can store it in the fridge for later use.

    1. Thank you for your feedback! And for the tip about combining the ingredients when the dairy is at room temperature- good idea!

We'd love to hear from you!
