    Neighbor fellow works as a fisherman up in Alaska.

    He gave me a Halibut steak about the size of a large dinner plate and an inch thick.

    Tell me your favorite Halibut recipe for a gas grill BBQ...its an old one with the lava-rocks...

    Thanks.....Joe

    Problem with most fish is that it falls through the grill. We either cook it in tinfoil or on a soaked cedar plank. Valerie covers it in mayonnaise with herbs and dill sprinkled on it. If you've not tried this before, the mayonnaise cooks down.

    I have not tried one of those fish baskets for grilling, but intend to pick one up and try it this summer.

    I got introduced to this on a fishing charter out of Juno AK - pretty easy and just about foolproof. Works best with fresh caught but not bad with previously frozen fish.

    Make up this marinade at least 1/2 day before cooking time:

    6 TBs vegetable oil
    1/3 cup Soy sauce
    1/2 tsp white pepper
    3 minced cloves garlic
    3 small green oiions chopped fine
    2 tBs sugar

    Cut the fish in serving size steaks and put that in a plastic bag with the marinade and put on ice or in the fridge. - flip over a couple of times during the day.

    Grill on a hot flame turning the fish just once. This should take about 3 minutes per side. When the fish begins to flake it is done. The oil in the mix keeps the fish from sticking.

    Serve with lemon juice or some melted butter if you really want to richen it up.

    If you decide to bake it the oven. I put a little virgin olive oil in the bottom of the pan, then I mix Hellmans mayonaise with Frenches yellow mustard, cover the fish top and bottom half inch thick on top and bake uncoverd at 360. HMB

    Why on earth do you guys want to cover up the flavor of halibut with these marinades? Just put it on a well greased grill, medium heat,and flip at about 3 minutes, or when it starts to flake. A little rice with butter, fresh asparagus, a good wine, and you have a meal fit for a king!

    Aluminum foil on the grill, 4 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 stick of butter melted, add fish and cut vadalia onion on top of fillet, cook on fairly high heat for 3 minutes per side, don't over cook. Fish will continue to cook on it's own after removing. Make sure grill is hot about 300 degrees with the top closed. Serve with butter. We use hash browns and baked beans with it and it is amazing.

    Forgot, salt and pepper to your liking and dill salt if you care for extra spice.

    Great eating!

    Cut the filet into 1"x3" pieces, dip in an egg wash, coat it in instant potato flakes and fry until golden brown, then sprinkle lemon pepper on it and go to town. My neighbor in Palmer AK gave that recipe to me 30 yrs ago and I still use it

    I'm a pretty poor cook, but give me a frying pan, some butter and salt and pepper and I can make halibut.
