Yield

4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge)

Most fish can be grilled to perfection over a fairly hot fire. Moist, fresh halibut, in particular, stands up well to medium-high heat, which sears the surface and cooks the flesh through. If there is any sticking when you turn the fish, recoat the grill rack with cooking spray.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 lemon wedges
