Grilled Halibut with South Asian Sauce

Inspired by Lucy Waverman and Kevin Closet Cooking

Prep time 10 minutes

Grill time 8-10 minutes

Serves 2


1 large Halibut steak (salmon and other firm fish steaks are great too)


2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup fresh cilantro

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

2-3 tbsp lime juice

1 tsp sugar

1 tbsp Asian fish sauce

1/2-1 tsp Aleppo pepper flakes (or red chili pepper flakes)

1/4 cup or so olive oil


1. Prepare the sauce - nothing easier than using the food processor.  Drop garlic down the feeding tube with the motor running.  Then but everything except the olive oil into the bowl and pulse a few times until everything is chopped and well blended.  Pour the oil down the feeding tube with the motor running.    If you don't have a food processor, finely chop everything and mix well in a bowl. 

2. Prepare the grill - on high.  If you don't have a grill, you can roast at 450F/220C.    Coat the halibut with some of the sauce.  Grill for 4-5 minutes per side .  

Serve with extra sauce
