Grilled Halibut with Bleu Cheese Butter

I purchased a fancy new grill pan/pizza stone/baking stone at one of my favorite stores, Sur La Table. I had received a gift card there for my last birthday and have spent the last seven months deciphering what I would purchase with it when I came across this one and new I had to have it. I loved it's versatility. The very first day I brought it home I knew it needed to be used.

Todd threw it on the grill and I headed for the store to pick out some beautiful white fish. Have no fear if you have never cooked halibut before,  it's a cinch! The butter is even easier!
If you don't have a grilling stone, oil the grill surface and place them directly on the grill! (It will still turn out wonderful, just be cautious when flipping!)

Grilled Halibut with Bleu Cheese Butter
Serves: Four (4)

Four (4) Six to Eight ounce halibut fillets
Five ounces of crumbled bleu cheese
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 Tablespoons butter
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive oil (for brushing halibut) 

Brush halibut filets (on all sides) with a small amount of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Place stone on grill and allow to warm-up at least 20 minutes.

Place halibut fillets onto grilling stone and close lid. Grill for 7 minutes per side or until fish is cooked through and flaky. (Note: Try to avoid turning more than once as the fish get quite soft and tends to fall apart.)

Meanwhile, on your stove-top combine butter, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and blue cheese and melt on low heat, stirring frequently.

Remove halibut from grill and plate on dinner plates. Spoon warm bleu cheese butter mixture over each fillet until gone.
That was pretty easy, wasn't it?

Enjoy and have a lovely weekend!
