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.
- 1 tablespoon paprika
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 4 (4 -6 ounce) alaska halibut steaks, fresh, thawed, frozen
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter, melted
- Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat.
- Mix together all dry seasoning ingredients until well combined.
- 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.).
- 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.
- Store remaining seasoning mixture in an airtight container for future use.
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.
The spice mix is lovely - It doesn't overpower the fish just enhances the flavor. I have some Snapper in the freezer and I will try it on them as well. I had fresh halibut - just the start of the season so it was super good. I lightly covered the fish with foil for the first 8 minutes so the spices wouldn't get too brown Perfect fish!
Just tried this. I'm a typical guy so I figured I'd mess it up. But it worked! Really tasted good! I melted all the spices into the butter and painted it on one side only. Makes a nice little spicy butter "shell" on top. Thanks!
