Ginger Halibut with Brussels Sprouts

I moved to the United States from Russia and love cooking Russian food for family and friends. Halibut with soy sauce, ginger and pepper is a favorite. —Margarita Parker, New Bern, North Carolina
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 halibut fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 10 ounces (about 2-1/2 cups) fresh Brussels sprouts, halved
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Lemon slices, optional


  • Brush lemon juice over halibut fillets. Sprinkle with minced ginger, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  • Place fish on an oiled grill rack, skin side down. Grill, covered, over medium heat (or broil 6 in. from heat) until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 6-8 minutes.
  • In a large skillet, bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts, pepper flakes and, if desired, remaining salt. Cook, covered, until tender, 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic; cook until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
  • Drizzle sesame oil and soy sauce over halibut. Serve with Brussels sprouts; sprinkle with fried garlic. If desired, serve with lemon slices.

    Delicious flavor combinations! I used the broiler to prepare the fish. I broiled each side for about 5-7 minutes on low broil. This is a very unique and easy way to flavor fish. Nice change of pace!

    An easy recipe to cut down for just one or two. I only made one change to the recipe steps: I added the parboiled Brussels sprouts to the roasting pan that I used to broil the fish (I don't own a grill, so I used the oven). Toasting the brussies made them that much better. I made enough of the heated oil to drizzle over both the fish and the brussies. This volunteer field editor gives Margarita's recipe five stars!!
