Yummy!! I used halibut steaks (3 steaks about 1.75 lbs total) and marinated them for a couple of hours. I changed the marinade just a little - first of all I doubled it, and I used olive oil instead of butter. I also used honey instead of brown sugar and added a couple of extra garlic cloves. I used the garlic press instead of a knife for the garlic because I like the way pressed garlic works in a marinade. I grilled my halibut on a stovetop grill, 5 minutes on the first side and 4 on the second, and I boiled the leftover marinade to drizzle over the fish on the plate. We loved it and I will make it again. I'll probably use this marinade on a slightly less expensive fish - here in NY the halibut cost $15.99 lb, so, it was a bit pricey. But what a gorgeous fish steak! Thanks.
Very unusual flavor. It was edible, but not exactly enjoyable. My boyfriend thought it tasted like sweet and sour fish. I followed the recipe closely, only variation was to marinate the fish in the sauce for appx. 15 min. Won't make again, sorry
Tried this recipe for the first time last night and I must say it was fantastic! I marinated the Halibut for several hours before grilling. I think the butter flavor is essential so rather than substituting oil for butter I just melted the butter and allowed it to sit in the marinade before adding the Halibut. Of course it thickened up again, but once the Halibut was on the grill, it just melted into the fish. My whole family enjoyed this recipe. Thank you!
How could I go wrong making this dish after all the excellent reviews? It was delicious! I marinated the halibut for about 4 hours, then baked it at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes. It was awesome! I also doubed the sauce for extra marinade and dipping sauce. I can't wait to try the fish/marinade on the grill this Spring and Summer.
Absolutely fantastic! I used this on Halibut and Mahi Mahi and the crowd went wild. 60-90 minutes to marinate in an 8 x 8 glass pan, then onto the grill. This is definately a keeper.
I loved this one...although I did substitute the brown sugar for pure maple syrup (which I always do) and I grilled it on the BBQ on a bed of lemons cut about 1/4 inch. Great recpe.
GREAT recipe, great marinade. I used this with Tilapia, and it was fantastic, and so easy! I will definitely use this again with other fish, chicken, pork and it would be great on grilled veggies. I, too, doubled the marinade, and it was more than enough. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious! Not as sweet as I'd expected (but that was a good thing). Even less sweet than teriaki sauce. I broiled them in the oven and kept basting with the sauce. Other than broiling instead of BBQing, I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was great as-is. I served with rice and broccoli stir-fried with oyster sauce & soy sauce.
