  1. Step 1

    In a large glass bowl, combine soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and half of the chopped scallion.​
  2. Step 2

    Place the fillets in a large resealable zipper baggie, then pour the marinade liquid into the baggie, squeeze out any excess air and seal. This marinating technique allows a relatively small amount of liquid to cover the entire surface area of the halibut fillets.​
  3. Step 3

    Marinate fillets in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.​
  4. Step 4

    Preheat broiler for 5 minutes.​
  5. Step 5

    Remove fillets from baggie and place them skin side down on a sheet pan lined with a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle generously with sesame seeds, patting them firmly against the fillets. The fillets should be fully coated with sesame seeds.​
  6. Step 6

    Place pan in on top rack of your oven (or under the broiler if you have a separate broiler) and broil 7 to 8 minutes or until the fillets flake but still give slightly when pressed with your thumb; don't over cook them, though, or they'll be too dry.​
  7. Step 7

    While the fillets cook, pour the leftover marinade liquid into a saucepan and bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer and reduce while the fillets cook. Note: For safety reasons, it is important to bring the marinade to a full boil before serving it with the dish.​
  8. Step 8

    Serve halibut topped with the reduced marinade and garnished with the remaining green onion.
