Lemon Basil Halibut

I love lemon and basil with fish- nothing pairs better or is easier to whip together- as long as you don’t over do it. You want to enhance the delicate flavor of the fish, not hide it.

Basil Lemon Sauce

  • 7 or 8 fresh basil leaves
  • Zest and juice form 1 lemon
  • pinch of salt & pepper

Blend all together and puree until semi smooth.


  • 2 thick firm pieces of fresh halibut.
  • 1 lemon sliced into wheels
  • Salt & pepper

Lay lemon wheels on tinfoil. Season fish with salt & pepper and lay on top of lemon wheels. Spoon lemon basil puree over top and wrap up into foil packages. Grill on med bbq for 7-8 min (or 350 oven) until cooked but flaky. Spoon extra cooking liquid over fish for serving but use sparingly so you don’t overwhelm the halibut flavor.
