I highly recommend cooking it in parchment paper. It keeps it nice and moist. I use different toppings, but this looks like a great recipe I found on Youtube. Bon apetit!

Halibut lends itself to damn near any good fish recipe from 'beer battered & deep fried' for fish and chips - to broiled in butter, citrus, and white wine - to poached with fish cream sauce. It's great grilled on alder wood and charcoal too.

Just use solid technique in whatever method you choose....it's too great a fish to fuck it up by using bad methodology.

Blandest, most nearly tasteless fish I've ever had in my life.


I don't desire it again.


By comparison, catfish, mullet, whiting, cod...any of those...I'm more than happy to eat them fried
without any seasonings whatsoever except for a pinch of salt.


They have lots of flavor.

Wrap it in foil with some butter and lemon pepper and throw it on the grill.

Panko deep fried is my favorite way, seems to be a favorite in Alaska too. I recently did some like that with Halibut I caught in Alaska last month and it was delicious. My second favorite way is to grill it with some olive oil and herbs. Be careful to not overcook it since it's not a fatty fish.

There's a deep fried halibut restaurant in Anchorage that I've never been to, even though I grew up around it. It doesn't have a bad rep, my family & friends just never went:

Not sure how this will work with Halibut, but you can give it a try... it's easy, and cleanup is silly simple!

this recipe works great with steal head and the likes

Get a 8x12 ish flat baking tray deal (small cookie sheet?)
Cover in aluminum foil
Put fish skin side down in tray
Get some peper and go over the whole top! I like a lot, you can use less if you are a wimp.
Now preheat your oven to 350deg.
While that is warming up, take an entire stick of butter, and melt it in the microwave in a dish. While it's still hot, pour two tablespoons of molasses into the hot butter. Stir till blended as best you can.
now take that buttery molassesy concoction and pour it all over the fish! Coat the entire top! It will pool around the fish as it runs off if you didn't puss out, and not use a whole stick of butter.

Pop that tray in the oven and let cook for 15 minutes.

As soon as the buzzer beeps, grab some brown sugar, open the over and sprinkle the suger over the fish. You can also take a spoon and reapply some butter from your butter pool at this time.

Close oven, and switch to broil for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar starts to slightly bubble on fish. IF IT STARTS SMOKING OR TURNS BLACK, TURN IT OFF DUH!

now take your fish out, and let sit for a couple minutes.

To serve, take a butter knife, and run it between the skin, and fish. the fish will separate from the skin, as the skin is now firmly stuck to the tinfoil

Eat your damn fish......

And the best part!!!!!

Cleanup! Take foil off tray, and throw in trash, wipe off tray, done!

damn that sounds good.

Pan seared with nice dry rub is the only way to do halibut IMO. If you want to deep fry or poach in butter........well go with cod, tilapia or something cheaper. Halibut is too damn expensive around here, probably not the case for you guys in the NW or west coast. I also think halibut is greatly overrated, but that's a whole different story.
