What You'll Need

  • 4 halibut fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 medium clove garlic (finely minced or pressed)
  • 2 teaspoons parsley (freshly chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoons herb seasoning blend (or a few shakes, to taste)

How to Make It

  1. Brush broiler rack with a little olive oil.
  2. Lightly sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine melted butter with garlic, chopped parsley, and herb seasoning blend.
  4. Brush fish with the herb butter mixture.
  5. Place on broiler rack. Broil for about 10 to 14 minutes, depending on thickness, turning once about halfway through.

    Serves 4, but this recipe is very easy to scale for 2. Use 2 fillets, a small clove of garlic, about 1 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter, and 1 teaspoon of parsley, along with a little less seasoning.
