"Halibut is one of my favorite fish to cook. This was a very expensive waste of a perfectly good piece of fish. It really clashed with the flavor of the fish. I was really surprised as the marinade was good to the taste. The halibut with the mustard dill sauce was by far a better pairing of flavors."

"Had a nice glaze with the sauce that added a little sweetness. It was very good and will make it again."

"This was so delicious. I grilled fresh Alaskan halibut using a stainless steel grill pan on our grill grate. Started grilling on fleshy side for 5 min, then flipped to finish on the skin side. Family enjoyed it so much, just like eating in a fine seafood restaurant!"
