Ready in less than 15 minutes, this grilled halibut recipe is perfect for a summer weeknight meal. Whether you’re cooking on the BBQ, a grill, or a grill pan, halibut is a light and flaky fish that is quick and easy to cook and not too “fishy” for even the non-fish lovers to enjoy.
I paired this grilled halibut with a simple tomato and fennel salad; however, it would work really well paired with rice, roasted potatoes, and/or a big leafy green salad. Regardless of what pairing you choose, halibut is incredibly high in protein and rich in healthy fats making it a great addition to any well-balanced meal.
