Grilled Halibut Fillet Camping Recipe

Slather a little basting sauce on the fish, toss it on the grill, flip it and eat.

It really is ready in mere minutes!

This recipe is written to serve 4 but it is easily scaled up to feed larger crowds or down to make camping meals for two.

You can grill many types of fish but I really like halibut because it is readily available and relatively inexpensive.

Halibut is firm enough for grilling but flakey, tender and mild enough to take on the flavor profile you add during cooking.

The simple basting sauce adds a bit of sweet and heat to make it interesting and a punch of fresh herbs finishes this easy grilled halibut recipe off perfectly.

Soy And Garlic Grilled Halibut Fillet Camping Recipe

Step 1.

Start your campfire or your charcoal. If we have good campfire wood for cooking, I like making this recipe over a campfire but if we are stuck with a pile of pine, I opt for cooking with my little Smokey Joe grill and charcoal. 

I like using a chimney starter to start my charcoal efficiently without lighter fluid.

Step 2.

Mix the brown sugar, garlic powder, ground ginger, cayenne pepper, vegetable oil, soy sauce and lemon juice.

Step 3.

Heat and oil the grill.
