This also works well with other fish steaks. Prepare the soy sauce mixture well in advance, it needs time to cool to room temperature. Because of the sodium content in the soy sauce do not use any extra salt, or use low-sodium soy sauce.
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄4 cup maple syrup (can use 3 tablespoons brown sugar in place of maple syrup)
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic (or to taste)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (can use low-sodium soy sauce)
- 1 pinch ginger powder (optional)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 (1 lb) halibut steaks
- Place butter, maple syrup, garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, ginger (if using) and black pepper in a saucepan; heat until the butter has melted (about 2 minutes) stirring constantly, then cool to room temperature.
- Brush each and both sides of the steaks VERY generously with the soy sauce mixture, reserving some to brush on the fish while grilling.
- Place into a shallow glass dish, cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
- Lightly oil the grill grate.
- Cook the fish for about 5 minutes per side brushing with remaining sauce (discard any remaining sauce).
