Make this sweet, tangy halibut dish with ease by investing in a fish-grilling basket, allowing you to flip your fish without worrying about it sticking to the grill.


Lime zest

1 tbsp(s)

Packed light brown sugar

2 tbsp(s)

Ginger root

2 tbsp(s), grated

Cayenne pepper

¼ tsp(s)

Uncooked halibut fillet

1¼ pound(s), four 6 oz fillets cut 1/2-inch thick

Fresh lime juice

2 tbsp(s)

Table salt

1 tsp(s)


½ medium, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick spears (about 2 cups)


  1. Coat grill with cooking spray. Preheat grill.
  2. Place zest, lime juice, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of ginger, salt and cayenne pepper in a zip-close plastic bag; shake to combine and add fish. Allow to marinate for 20 minutes, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, in a second plastic bag, place remaining brown sugar and ginger, and pineapple. Allow to marinate for 5 minutes; remove pineapple and add resulting juices to fish.
  4. Grill pineapple until heated through, turning once, about 8 minutes. Remove to a serving platter; cover with foil to keep warm.
  5. Cook fish, brushing with marinade, over direct heat until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Place on serving platter with pineapple. Yields about 1 fillet plus 1/2 cup pineapple per serving.
