Spicey Grilled Halibut

In a bowl combine the following:

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • lime wedges and or lime peel strips (optional)

1 lb fresh or frozen halibut steaks, cut 1 inch thick (for a serving of 4)  Thaw fish if frozen.  Rinse: pat dry with paper towels.  Cut into 4 serving-size pieces, if necessary.  Brush with a mixture of 1 Tbsp lime juice and 1 Tbsp water.  paprika, salt ginger, all spice and pepper: rub onto fish.

For grilling:

Place fish on foil and grill for 4 to 6 minutes per side on about a 450 degree grill.

For baking:

Arrange fish in a shallow baking pan.  Bake uncovered in a 450 degree oven for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Brush fish with pan juices.  If desired garnish with lime wedges and or  peel strips. 

Or pan saute in olive oil and try adding fresh chopped cilantro – goes great on fish!

Try this Caribbean-style fish with Mango Salsa (see sauces).  You can also use the spice rub on other fish such as red snapper, orange roughy or flounder.
