What You'll Need
Halibut filets or steaks (approx. 1 inch thick)
Medium hot coals in the grill
Seasoning of your choice
Prepare the coals for the grill approximately 30 minutes before you plan to cook. The coals should be spread out beneath the grill grate and moderately hot. Test this by placing you hand over the grate and counting - you should get to four before the heat becomes too hot to keep your hand in place.
Brush each filet or steak with olive oil. Once again this will keep them from sticking on the grill. Apply any desired seasonings.
Place the halibut on the grill grate at a 45 degree angle. Allow to cook for 2 minutes and then rotate them another 45 degrees for the 'professional' looking grill marks. Cook for another two minutes.
Turn the halibut over and repeat the above process. Total cooking time for the halibut, either steaks or filets, is around 8 minutes.
Serve with baked potatoes and roasted vegetables for a full meal. Or flake the fish and serve over a fresh salad for a light, but filling meal.
