This recipe belongs to a fellow member, Sher Bird. She had posted it on another cooking web-site we both belonged to a couple of years ago. This recipe is so flavorful, simple, easy and most ingredients you might already have on hand. Sher said, it is her family’s favorite way to eat fish. She also uses the sauce for salmon on the grill. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I have.
Sher, thank you so much for sharing your recipe, and thank you for permission to re-post.

Prep: 30min


  • 1 pound(s) halibut steaks (may use cod, sea bass or other firm white fish
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) honey or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dijon style mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) minced fresh ginger
  • 2 clove(s) garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) fresh chopped chervil or other herb of your choice
  • – salt and pepper to taste


  1. In small saucepan, combine all ingredients, except the halibut. Over medium heat, mix until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Put Halibut in a non metalic pan or ziplock bag, pour marinade over fish. Marinate in fridge for about 30 mins.

    I make a double batch of marinade and seperate, one batch for marinating and one batch for basting.

  3. Oil grill grate and preheat grill. Place halibut steaks on grill and cook on each side for about 5 minutes, basting with marinade while fish is cooking.
  4. Grill until done, halibut should be opaque through to the middle and flake easily with a fork.

    Discard extra marinade that has had contact with the raw fish.

  5. Notes: Instead of mincing the garlic and ginger, I like to grate it. Seems the grating brings more flavor.
    I never add the salt
    I have never added the herbs
    I have made this with the honey or the brown sugar, very little taste difference. Actually, I used Splenda brown sugar.
    I have used the grill, oven broiler and grill pan on top of the stove to cook the fish for this recipe. They all work fine.
