DrBBQ’s Grilled Halibut Steaks with Curry-ish Lime Butter

By Ray Lampe, Dr. BBQ

Firm white fish like halibut with curry butter is a classic, so it seemed like a good idea to take that to the grill with our Bombay Curry-ish seasoning. Be sure to keep the butter at room temp so it doesn’t cool the fish down when you add it to the dish.
