Fast & Spicy Alaska Halibut

Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Serves: 4


1 Tablespoon paprika
 1-1/2 teaspoons each dried oregano and dried thyme
 1 teaspoon each onion powder and garlic powder
 1 teaspoon each black pepper and salt
 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
 4 Alaska Halibut steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or
 1-1/2 Tablespoons butter, melted


Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat.

Mix together all dry seasoning ingredients until well combined.  

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.  Place halibut on a spray-coated or foil-lined baking sheet.   Brush butter onto top surfaces of halibut and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoning mixture.  (Note: For best results with frozen fish, cook halibut 4 minutes before adding butter and spices.)  

Grill or broil halibut 5 to 7 inches from heat for 13 minutes for frozen halibut OR 8 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.  

Store remaining seasoning mixture in an airtight container for future use.
