Bacon Wrapped Grilled Halibut Steaks

We love the zippy flavor using jalapenos and cilantro to grilled whitefish. I use a fish rack with handle on the grill, some may want to use a drip pan, others might want to place fish on a greased piece of foil and others may want to plop these right on the grill rack....whatever! I have also broiled these, but there's nothing like the flavor of things when grilled! I serve this with a Mango Salsa Ole, Mango Salsa Ole' on the side and a lettuce salad using a ginger-flavored vinagarette.
