Broiled/Grilled Halibut (Izgara Pisi Balık)



I should give credit to my uncle whom I learned how to cook this fish. He is also in favor of cooking from scratch with fresh ingredients. His main principle has been to cook delicious food in little time. The preparation of this dish is very simple and involves very few ingredients, but it tastes great and is very healthy. Because of the quick preparation and cooking time, this dish is perfect for a weeknight dinner and very convenient for working folks.

2 halibut steaks
2 tbsp olive oil
1 juicy lemon
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp paprika

Heat the broiler or an outdoor grill. Sprinkle the salt, black pepper and the paprika on both sides of the halibut steaks. Drizzle olive oil and squeeze the lemon on both sides of the fish. Broil for 10-15 minutes for each side on the broiler and enjoy with rice and vegetables.
