never tried halibut and this recipe was perfect - nice tangy sauce really compliments the fish. I grilled the fish instead of bbq'in it too and it worked really well - 11 Apr 2011


Made it healthier. used diet flora instead of butter and used 1/2 a lime in the sauce - the entire (4 servings now) is P2 on the weight watchers pro points plan - 11 Apr 2011
