Roasted Halibut with Balsamic-Garlic Glaze

July 21, 2012

Roasted Halibut with Balsamic-Garlic Glaze is a simple recipe. There’s not much to say about it except, “You must try it!”

It’s one of my favorite recipes from Diane Rossen Worthington’s Seriously Simple. She says it’s the recipe that inspired her to write the book, and it’s one of my favorite cookbooks of all time!

If you like halibut, I think you’ll love this quick, easy, and foolproof way to prepare it.


Roasted Halibut, ready to serve!

(Adapted from Diane Rossen Worthington’s recipe in Seriously Simple)


(print the recipe)


Serves 4 – 6


2 pounds halibut steak

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


1. Whisk the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and a bit of salt and pepper together. Put the halibut steaks in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade in. Turn the bag several times to evenly distribute the marinade.


2. Put the bag in a dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes – 2 hours. (I marinated mine for 1 hour.)


3. Preheat the oven to 425˚.

4. Take the halibut from the bag and place in a roasting pan. (I used a foil-lined baking sheet.) Discard the marinade.

 Ready to roast


5. Roast the halibut for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, until it flakes easily.
