  3. Broil about 4 inches from heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

I cut this recipe in half for the 2 of us & there was just enough left over for a nice snack! I did use roughy as per the recipe but might just try it with halibut another time! Loved the mix of flavors here & wouldn't change a thing (well, except, mayby, to up the amount of garlic, but that's no major thing! [Tagged, made & reviewed while touring Australia during ZWT5]

Excellent. I used my grill basket to grill these and it worked great. I added a little more garlic and extra lemon juice, but other that stayed with the recipe as written. Thanks Rita
