Fast & Spicy Halibut

Prep: 15 minutes Grill: about 15 minutes Serves: 4


4 halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6 ounces each), fresh, thawed, or frozen

1 tablespoon paprika

1 1/2 teaspoons each dried oregano and dried thyme

1 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder

1 teaspoon each black pepper and salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste

1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat grill to medium high.

Mix together all dry-seasoning ingredients until well combined.

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.

Place fish on a spray-coated or foil-lined baking sheet.

Brush butter on to top surfaces of halibut and sprinkle with ½ teaspoon seasoning mixture.

Grill halibut 5 to 7 inches from heat for 13 to 15 minutes for frozen halibut or 8 minutes for fresh fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. 

NOTE: For best results with frozen fish, cook halibut 4 minutes before adding butter and spices.
