Smoky Grilled Halibut

Our *Olive Wood* Smoked Olive Oil really kicks this dish up a notch!

Prep time:


Serve with rice pilaf and asparagus or your other favorite sides!


  1. Put the rosemary, sea salt, and pepper into a small zip bag. Close the bag and crush it a few times between your palms. This will season the salt with rosemary.
  2. Place fish fillets in large bag or container with lid. Sprinkle with rosemary sea salt and gently massage to coat evenly. Add the smoked olive oil and massage again to coat evenly.
  3. Allow the fillets to marinate for about 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.

    (My halibut was cooked to perfection indoors on a cast iron stove-top grill. However, you can prepare a charcoal grill, gas grill, or even roast the halibut in the oven. It will not matter, because after taking a bite, your guests will be certain that you flew olive wood in from Spain to build the fire over which you cooked the halibut.)

  4. Grill the fish, skin side down, over medium, indirect flame, flipping after about 4 minutes. Pull the fish off the heat source just before it's done, allowing it to rest, loosely covered in foil for 2 minutes before serving. This will allow your fish to cook through from the residual heat as opposed to becoming overdone on the exterior.
  5. If cooking poultry, make sure to cook through to at least 155 F. Mushrooms and eggplant will require about 15 minutes depending on taste.
  6. Serve with lemon wedges.
