Broiled Halibut with Lemon Garlic Sauce

Halibut Marinade
  • 4 fillets
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • Lemon Garlic Sauce (recipe below)
  • lemon slices
  • parsley leaves

Place fillets skin side down on greased baking pan or greased rack of broiler pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In a small saucepan, combine butter, garlic, and herbs. Heat over low heat until butter is melted and garlic is softened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Spoon butter mixture over each fillet. If making ahead, cover the pan and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until ready to cook.

Place the baking pan in an oven preheated to 425°F and bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness of the fish. The fish is done when it is opaque in color and has a flaky texture.

Serve with Lemon Garlic Sauce (recipe below) and garnish with parsley leaves and lemon slices, if desired.

Lemon Garlic Sauce
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter or butter substitute, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce

Mix together and drizzle over the fish.  Also good on roasted vegetables.
