What's this?

Grill halibut to light and flaky wood-fired perfection, before topping it with our rich and creamy lemon sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup white wine

  • 1/2 Cup water

  • 1/4 Cup finely chopped shallots

  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

  • 2 Tablespoon heavy cream

  • 2 Stick unsalted sweet cream butter

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • To Taste salt and pepper

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil

  • 4 thick-cut halibut fillets

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 375°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    To make the sauce, place wine, water, shallots, vinegar, salt and pepper in a sauce pan over medium to high heat. Bring to a boil to reduce it by about 1/3 cup.
  • 3

    Once reduced, transfer to a food processor bowl to purée, then transfer back to the sauce pan and add the cream.
  • 4

    Turn the heat to low, and add butter little by little, slowly whisking with a wire whisk after each addition (this should take about 3 to 4 minutes to add all the butter). Beat steadily, the sauce should never boil.
  • 5

    Add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm until ready to serve.
  • 6

    Add olive oil to Dutch oven and place directly on the grill grate to pre-heat.
  • 7

    Season halibut with salt and pepper and place inside the hot Dutch oven.
  • 8

    Cook approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side, until internal temperature reaches 130°F and fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  • 9

    Serve halibut with butter sauce over. Enjoy!
