Best thing I ever ate…

Spicy Citrus Halibut

(from Williams-Sonoma Grilling and Roasting which I just rediscovered in my pantry)

This is the best piece of fish I ever ate…hands down. Its fantastic. Its so good I cooked it two nights in a row. I hate cleaning the food processor but this is worth it beez. 

(look at those grillllllll marks)

What you need, what what you need:

  3. Rub paste evenly over both sides of each fish fillet. 
  4. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 2-4 hours (we barely made it 1 hour and it tasted phenomenal)
