I love the mild, sweet taste of halibut and its firm texture, but like most white fish, it can sometimes taste a little bland.
In this grilled halibut recipe, a soy-and-jalapeño sauce adds an interesting layer to the fish’s mild taste.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, divided
- 4 (6 oz) halibut steaks, skin on or off
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
- 1 small jalapeño pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- Heat grill to medium-high.
- In a small bowl, combine the olive oil and 1 tablespoon soy sauce. Brush the fish with the mixture and season with salt and pepper.
- In another small bowl, prepare the sauce by mixing together the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce, the rice vinegar, ginger, jalapeño, and cilantro. Set aside.
- Oil the grill. Grill the fish until opaque throughout, about 5 minutes per side.
- Spoon the sauce over the fish and serve.
