Living in beautiful British Columbia we frequently have access to fresh halibut. I was looking for another good recipe, other than Dancer's Grilled Lemon-Basil Halibut and this is it!! I've made this three times now and this last time I did something a little different. Following the example of a salmon recipe I 'saved' the marinade after removing the halibut and just before the fish was ready I boiled it for 1-2 minutes! Happy to say we survived without any ill effects and it was delicious!!! Otherwise it seems like such a waste of a wonderful marinade. The first time I only used half (just for 2) and froze the other half. I have used fresh tarragon and dried once both are great although our preference is always for fresh. You've got to try this one. Thank you Julesong!

Halibut is one of our favorite fish and this recipe is absolutely delicious. The flavouring is subtle but definitely present--not overwhelming. When I made it my hubby and 30 yr old son (myself as well)thought they had died and gone to heaven!!!!

This recipe showed up when I was looking for something different. Just happened to have fresh tarragon growing on the balcony and one of our favourite herbs. Wonderful fresh flavor - lots of character. Works very well with salmaon and even haddock. This is certainly going in my cookbook. Thanks.
