"Simple ingredients produce a delicious recipe for halibut. You may grill the halibut but I like to bake it. The original recipe was in allrecipes by serenadelorenzo. I have made some minor changes. Do not put the lime juice on the fish until you are ready to pop it in the oven - Lime juice will cook the fish if you put it on too early"
