Sesame-Soy Halibut

Karin Lazarus | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 6 people
  • Calories per serving: 294

Serving tip: Accompany with baby bok choy that's been sliced lengthwise, brushed with olive oil, and grilled for 10 minutes until lightly charred. TIP: Gas grills produce a less intense heat than charcoal fires, so cooking times will be longer.

  1. In a food processor, coarsely grind sesame seeds. Add soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, garlic, chile pepper, honey, lemon juice, and orange juice. Process for another 30 seconds.
  2. Preheat grill to medium. Brush fish lightly with olive oil. Apply sesame-soy mixture thickly on each fillet. Grill fish until just opaque in center, about 7 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with additional sesame-soy mixture. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with sliced scallions.
