I made half the recipe, going light on the herbs because I thought they might be too much as written. They weren't. I'd make this as written, especially if you are lucky enough to get a thick ...

Wow! What a great recipe! The only thing I changed was, I used fresh tarragon instead of the dried because the dried was not available. It would be a great way to prepare fish for a large d...

This was the best halibut I've had so far! The flavours were amazing with the herbed butter and smokey flavour of the cedar truly knocked it out of the park. I took hints from other reviewers an...

This was amazing just as written. We had several courses coming off the grill that night and this took best of the BBQ. Thanks so much for sharing.

This is the best halibut recipe I've every tried. The only think I did different was I used fresh herbs. The fresh herbs were the perfect balance of taste.

Be sure to use cedar... I used hickory planks and soaked them for two hours. This did not fare well.

I made this tonight, and I don't eat seafood. My fiance and son loved it!
