Moist fish steaks are draped with thick and creamy sauce in this flavorful recipe. The topping makes a nice alternative to traditional tartar sauce and is just as good on swordfish. —Laura Lunardi, West Chester, Pennsylvania


  • 1/3 cup fat-free plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dill weed
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 halibut steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, dill and mustard; cover and refrigerate. Sprinkle halibut with salt and pepper.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill halibut, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve sauce with halibut.
