Grilled Halibut with Garlic-Cilantro Sauce

This looks delicious and nourishing!


  • 2 ¾ pounds halibut filets or steaks, 1 per person
  • Sauce Ingredients:
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tsp. lime zest (from 2 limes)
  • 3 Tbs lime juice
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 3 T very finely chopped fresh cilantro (or more, I used about 1/4 cup)


  1. Saute garlic in a small amount of olive oil for two minutes.
  2. Add chicken stock and lime zest and simmer about ten minutes, until stock is slightly reduced.
  3. Stir in lime juice and olive oil and heat for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Stir in cilantro and cook 1 minute more.
  5. Brush fish on both sides with sauce and let marinate 15 minutes while you pre-heat gas or charcoal grill to high heat. (For fish, I spray my grill with nonstick spray before I start heating it.)
  6. Grill fish until firm, but not hard, to the touch, about 5 minutes per side.
  7. To get nice grill marks, lay fish on a diagonal to grill slats, then rotate after about 3 minutes cooking time on the first side.
  8. Serve fish hot with additional sauce spooned over each piece of fish.
