Grilled Halibut with Herbed Lime Butter

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

My grill is getting some major mileage these days since it is such an easy and fast way to get dinner on the table. This Grilled Halibut with Herbed Lime Butter was a flavor party in my mouth. The fish is a perfect light summer meal kicked up a notch with a spicy herb infused butter that will make your taste buds sing.

My mother-in-law gave me the recipe for the spicy herbed butter and I’m so glad I gave it a try. Really, I could eat it by the spoonful if that was acceptable! It has a gentle kick and is made with lime, garlic, jalapeno, ginger, and cilantro. Just place a heaping teaspoon on the warm halibut and let it melt and ooze all over the fish.

Recipe for Grilled Halibut

The herbed lime butter is a perfect compliment to the mild flavor of the halibut and is also excellent on other firm white fish like tilapia or mahi. But it doesn’t stop there; this butter is great on lobster, chicken, or beef. I may even try it on toasted garlic bread.

Eating healthy does not have to be boring. You will be happy to add this to your good-for-you repertoire.

Salmon, Anyone?
