1 (6- to 7-ounce) halibut fillets, thawed, if frozen
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Wasabi Butter

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon wasabi paste or powder*


Place all halibut ingredients in large resealable plastic food bag. Tightly seal bag; turn to coat fish. Place bag into 13x9-inch pan; refrigerate for at least 20 minutes but no more than 4 hours.

Heat gas grill on medium-high or charcoal grill until coals are ash white.

Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade. Place fish onto grill. Grill, turning once, 6-8 minutes or internal temperature reaches at least 145°F and fish flakes easily with fork.

Meanwhile, combine all wasabi butter ingredients in small bowl.

To serve, dollop wasabi butter over grilled halibut.


*Substitute 1/4 teaspoon prepared horseradish.

Recipe Tip

- Make wasabi butter up to a day ahead. Let it soften at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.

- Wasabi paste and powder are usually available in the ethnic section of the grocery store. Regular prepared horseradish is a good substitute.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

had this for Christmas Dinner and it is now on the family top ten list for all time favorite food!!!!
This recipe is absolutely fantastic! I followed the recipe exactly as written, and I wouldn't change a thing. Had two guests for dinner and they couldn't stop raving about it. I served this Halibut with Creamy Mashed Potatoes from this site, and a simple green salad. This is an easy recipe that tastes delicious and looks like so much more work. You won't be sorry if you try this one!
