The subtle fruitiness of extra virgin olive oil and the bite of fresh cracked pepper make this halibut dish both simple and sublime.


  • 4 boneless halibut fillets, 8 ounces each
  • 4 tablespoons plus 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cracked pepper
  • Lemon or lime wedge for garnish


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. 

Lightly brush fillets with 1 teaspoon of olive oil each, then season with sea salt. 

Place fillets presentation side down on the grill, oriented to the 10 o’clock position. Grill for approximately 3-4 minutes, then turn fillets to the 2 o’clock position and grill for another 3-4 minutes. Flip fillets over, then repeat grilling at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions for 3-4 minutes per direction.

Remove fillets from grill when the internal temperature reaches 145°F, then slather each fillet with 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and season with fresh cracked pepper. Serve immediately with a lemon or lime wedge garnish.
