Grilled halibu...what's the best way to do this

DH is going to pick up some halibut to grill, but has never grilled it before. I definitely don't want him to overcook it. Any recipes...suggestions?

Wow! Nothing??
DH got back from the store without the halibut as both stores he went to were sold out. He's going to try again tomorrow, so if anyone's got some great ideas, I'd love to hear them. TIA

I have done this years ago when living in Washington State but don't remember much other than rub lightly with seasoning, baste with lemon garlic butter and grill on a hot grill turning once and basting again.
If done right you can get nice grill marks but definitely don't over cook as it can dry out quickly.

Halibut is really good marinated before you grill it. Use any marinade you like—an asian flavored one with lime juice, scallions, a bit of garlic, ginger and cilantro, or you can do mexican flavors or whatever you like. Marinate for a half hour and then grill it fast over a hot grill, just enough to sear it and cook until white but still tender. A Mexican marinate goes really well with a topping of fresh salsa, and avocado.

Carolyn Ketchum's site has a recipe for a nut crusted mahi mahi with a strawberry salsa that I bet would be delicious with halibut. Just grill it (quickly,as stated above) instead of however she cooks it.

Spread some mayo on it, and coat it with finely chopped macadamia nuts. Fry gently in butter. To die for.

Aside from grilling during the summer, my favorite way to prepare halibut and salmon is roasting it.

Hot oven, 425ish, with whatever seasoning and oil or butter you prefer. If you have convection roast setting on your oven use it, otherwise just bake is fine. Put the fish in up near the element. Roast it just until done- the thickest part of the fillet should be flaky in the middle. A 1.5 - 2 lb fillet of salmon or halibut takes about ten minutes. It is juicy, flaky and totally delicious. Add your toppings (salsa, sauce, hollandaise) after.
