Sweet and Sour Halibut

  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 4 Halibut Steaks (about 1 ½ lbs)
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 Tbsp Rice or Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Ginger, ground
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, halved and seeded
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, halved and seeded
  • 2 Scallions, cut in 2" julienne strips


Preheat the grill to medium heat. When ready to cook, spray the grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. In a large shallow bowl, combine the brown sugar, 1/4 cup water, the vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Measure out 1/4 cup of the mixture and set aside. Add the halibut to the mixture remaining in the bowl, turning to coat. Grill the bell pepper halves, cut-sides up, for 5 minutes, or until the skin is blackened. When cool enough to handle, peel the peppers and cut them into thin strips. Grill the halibut, uncovered, turning once, for 5 minutes or until the halibut is just opaque. Place the halibut on 4 plates, top with the reserved brown sugar mixture, the bell pepper strips and the scallions. Serve with your favorite fresh vegetables and enjoy.
