Firecracker Halibut

READY IN: 20mins

Seafood done right can be a little slice of heaven. This particular dish is one of my personal favorites. Good as a main dish and also good over salad of your choice.

This was very good. I used frozen halibut (thawed) and followed the recipe as written. Since I was only cooking 2 fish filets, I also used the spice mix on some cleaned jumbo shrimp. Very tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Mix together all dry seasoning ingredients until well combined.
  3. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water, pat dry with paper towel. Place halibut on a spray-coated or foil-lined baking sheet. Brush butter onto top surfaces of halibut and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoning mixture (note: for best results with frozen fish, cook halibut 4 minutes before adding butter and spices.).
  4. Grill or broil halibut 5-7 inches from heat for 13 minutes for frozen halibut OR 8 minutes for fresh/thawed fish . Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
  5. Store remaining seasoning mixture in an airtight container for future use.
