"This recipe called for salmon, but I substituted another fish with delicious results," says Lisa Rowley of North East, Maryland. "It saves me time in the kitchen because all I have to do is mix up the seasoned butter, then turn it over to my husband, who does the grilling.


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 halibut or swordfish steaks, 1-inch thick


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; let stand for 30 minutes. Spread 1 tablespoon herbed butter over each halibut steak.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill fish, butter side down, covered, over medium heat or broil, buttered side up, 4 in. from the heat for 5-1/2 minutes.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon herbed butter over each halibut steak; turn and spread with remaining butter. Grill or broil 5-6 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
