A simple recipe for barbecued halibut or salmon. Soy sauce and brown sugar add a special zip that is uncommonly delicious. This recipe was found on the internet and is credited to Duane Glende.


  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Place butter, brown sugar, garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, and pepper in a small saucepan.
  3. Warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is completely dissolved.
  4. Lightly oil grill grate.
  5. Brush fish with brown sugar sauce, and place on grill.
  6. Cook for 5 minutes per side, or until fish can be easily flaked with a fork, basting with sauce.
  7. Discard remaining basting sauce.
  8. For extra sauce on the side, I usually double recipe for the sauce, and reserve some in a separate dish prior to basting the fish.

I used this on halibut and it tasted as good as it looked when it came off the grill. Definitely make the extra sause for dipping - everyone enjoyed it.
