Lemon-basil grilled halibut

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Marinating Time: 1 hour
Cooking time: 8–12 minutes

Lemon-basil grilled halibut


1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 clove (or 1 teaspoon) minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 halibut fillets (3 ounces each)

In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, salt, pepper, parsley, and red pepper flakes. Place the halibut in a zip-top plastic bag and drizzle evenly with marinade. Seal bag and shake gently to coat fish. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat (around 350°F). Place fish on grill, baste with any remaining marinade, then grill fish 4–6 minutes on each side, or until fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork.
