Quick Facts

Servings: 4
Cook Time: 12 min.
Absolutely delicious! Start to marinate the fish at least two hours before you plan to serve it.

Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 cup basil, fresh, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt (sea salt if on a corn-free diet*)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 lbs halibut fillets, or steaks

Directions

  • Combine all ingredients except for fish in a shallow dish large enough to hold the halibut.
  • Place fish in the dish and marinate for at least two hours, turning once or twice.
  • Remove fish from marinade and broil or grill for about 5 minutes on each side (10 minutes total per inch (2.5cm) of thickness). Transfer fish to a serving dish.
  • Heat remaining marinade in the microwave for one minute; then pour over fish. Serve while hot.
  • Serve with rice or couscous.

* Allergy notes: People following a corn-free diet should avoid iodized salt since it contains dextrose, which should be avoided by those allergic to corn.
