Though simple, this recipe provides you with the tools to grill most any flakey fish. We happen to particularly love halibut because it’s an inherently flavorful fish that requires no more than salt, pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lemon to taste absolutely divine

  • Drizzle both sides of fish with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fish on oiled grates. Grill, covered, until a thermometer registers 140°F when inserted in thickest portion of fillet, about 5 minutes per side. Remove fish from grill, and let rest 5 minutes. Squeeze lemon wedges over fish and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil.
