Chef Tips:
> To prevent halibut from sticking to the grill, make sure the grill grates are well oiled and hot before placing it on the grill.

Grill halibut with the skin on and use a fish spatula to turn it only once to help prevent it from flaking and falling apart.

Halibut steaks will take about 10 minutes to grill, and fillets about 7 minutes.
