The Easy Broiled Halibut Steaks recipe very easy to prepare and so good!
The most of time-honored of natural stoves, the backyard barbecue, is still one of the most popular. Cooking over hot coals enhances the flavor of all grilled foods and seafood is no exception. Charred mesquite wood has a delicate aroma all its own. Mesquite is difficult to find but charcoal will work as a substitute. However do not use hickory or oak chips - they would overpower the delicate fish flavor. Only fat fish should be used for broiling, such as halibut, salmon, swordfish, tuna or mackerel. A good rule of thumb: To avoid overcooking any fish, using any method of preparation, cook the fish at 10 minutes per inch of thickness of the piece of fish at its thickest point.
