You often can find different varieties of locally grown onions at farmers' markets and occasionally at supermarkets. Hastings likes to use specialty onions, including red torpedo, bianco de maijio, and gold coin. Here, we call for more readily available varieties. Use a grill basket to cook the fish and vegetables.
