He couldn’t stand it!

The other day on the treadmill, I watched Rachel Ray make this amazing fish sandwich!  Since then I had been dying to try it.  Well, NWH kind of gets set in his ways when it comes to food, so yesterday I told him dinner was going to be a surprise. 

He couldn’t stand it!  He must have asked me a million times throughout the day what we were having; and as soon as he walked through the door, he headed straight for the refrigerator to see what I had bought.

The fish was absolutely fabulous, and it was definitely a change in what we normally eat!  My grocery store didn’t have halibut so I used Mahi Mahi.  NWH and I don’t care for tartar sauce so I didn’t make it, but you don’t even need it with the lemon butter sauce! YUM, ya’ll have GOT to try this!

1 1/4 to 1 1/2 pounds fresh halibut, cut into 4 servings, 4 to 6 ounces each, 1-inch thick
Vegetable or olive oil, for drizzling
2 teaspoons crab boil seasoning (recommended: Old Bay)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 lemon, juiced

Preheat nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron grill pan over medium high heat. Drizzle halibut pieces with oil, then season with crab boil seasoning, salt and pepper. Grill on a hot pan 4 or 5 minutes on each side.

Place melted butter in a small dish and add juice of 1/2 lemon.

To assemble, brush bun bottoms and fish with lemon butter. Top fish with tomato and lettuce and serve.


  1. I wish I liked seafood:(

    but I do love sushi

  2. That sounds delicious! I wish I had a kitchen to make this in--fish sounds so delicious right now!
