This marinated, grilled halibut is perfect for a summertime dinner. The marinade gives the halibut a wonderful aroma and flavor that you can intensify as much as you like with the addition of jalapeno pepper. The key with halibutย  is to cook it for only a few minutes per side. Any more than that, and the halibut will lose its juicy and tender consistency. You can also ensure easy grilling by asking for thicker steaks that will not break apart when handled.

Note: You could use this delicious marinade on any other white flaky fish, or to make fish tacos.
