Halibut with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce

Broiled HalibutI know I’ve been posting a lot of recipes lately, but I’ve been doing a lot of cooking this week! And this one is so good, I must share it! Yesterday for Valentine’s Day my husband and I stayed in and cooked a nice meal together while my in-laws watched our kids for the night. (I know… we are spoiled). We cracked open a bottle of bubbly, lit some candles, and sat next to each other at our own dinner table. We got to eat while our food was STILL HOT and we were able to have an ACTUAL conversation without being interrupted by someone asking for ketchup or water or MORE food. What a luxury!

Here’s what we made. It is quickly becoming my favorite way to prepare fish.


  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper
  • 2 to 4 (5 oz.) filets of Halibut (preferably wild)
  • 4 Tbsp. melted butter (I use Organic Valley Pasture Butter)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. dried parsley
  • rind of half a lemon

Spray baking dish with non-stick spray or coat with a small amount of butter or olive oil and place filets in dish. Brush the fish with a small amount of oil and season with sea salt and pepper. In a small bowl combine all of the other ingredients and mix well. Spoon half to three quarters of the sauce of the fish. Save the rest. Turn on the broiler of your oven. Place fish under broiler and cook for about 20 minutes until the fish is cooked through to your liking. I like to let it go until the top of the fish looks browned and crispy. Serve fish with brown rice or potatoes and your favorite vegetable. Spoon the remaining lemon butter over the fish before serving.
