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.
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
4 lemon wedges
