  • 3 cloves garlic cloves minced
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 Tablespoons fresh thyme

  • Season. Gently toss the fillet to ensure all sides are evenly coated in the butter. Season all sides with freshly cracked pepper and salt.

  • Oil the grill. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil. Pinch the paper towel between tongs and wipe it on the grates of your grill to prevent the halibut from sticking while it grills.
  • Grill the halibut. Place the seasoned halibut directly on the grill grates. Close the lid and grill for 5-7 minutes. Flip them, close the lid, and grill until the internal temperature of the halibut reads 145 degrees F. You want your fish to be opaque and just start to flake.
  • Serve. Remove the grilled halibut from the grill. Serve hot with lemon wedges.
