How to broil halibut

Please help me. I would like to find out how to broil halibut. I had it in a restaurant recently with some kind of juice with cut green onions. It was wonderful. Any ideas? --geneswife70

 

Dear geneswife70:

Fresh halibut is available year-round but most abundant from March to September. Serve halibut with a lemon butter sauce with herbs and green onion -- a delicious compliment to the fish. To prepare, you can marinate the fish in lemon, butter and herbs. I think basil might be nice to try as well. Then just broil until the fish is white and flaky. A general rule for cooking fish is to measure it at its thickest point, then cook 8 to 10 minutes per inch. To test fish for doneness, use a fork to prod it at its thickest point. The fish should be opaque, its juices milky white. If the fish is undercooked, it is translucent, its juices clear and watery; overcooked fish is dry and falls apart easily.
