We were treated to this Halibut recipe at my brother and sister in law's a few months ago.  It was so delicious, that I asked for his recipe. 
  •   6 halibut fillets, 6 ounces each
  • salad or olive oil to brush on fillets
  • salt and pepper to season
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped fine
  • 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 packed tablespoon finely chopped dill
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon wedges
  1. Soak cedar planks in water for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to 400 F.
  3. Brush halibut fillets with oil on all sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the halibut fillets on the cedar plank and place on grill.
  5. Melt butter in a small fry pan, add all the remaining ingredients except for the salt and pepper. 
  6. Simmer on low heat until thickened.
  7. Remove fillets from grill when they have cooked through and flake with a fork. 
  8. Spoon sauce over fillets and give each fillet a wedge of lemon slice to be squeezed at the table.
