I liked this halibut a lot. I used white wine vinegar instead of the tomato vinegar. I had tomatoes, basil and thyme from my garden. Thanks for an easy, fresh and quick summertime dinner. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game.

  2. Mark the tomatoes with an "X" at the bottom and blanch for 1 minute in boiling water. Shock tomatoes in ice water, then peel off skins (savng them). Seed tomatoes (saving the seeds, too) and finely dice the tomato.
  3. Stir vinegar and garlic with half of diced tomato and saved skins and seeds. Let sit for 30 minutes then strain through a cheesecloth without squeezing (to keep liquid clear).

  5. Preheat grill on medium high and heat a fish grill (mesh). Brush halibut fillets with oil and season lightly.
  6. Place thyme on grill and once it starts smoking, place halibut fillets on grill. Close lid on Barbecue and let cook for 8 minutes.
  7. Lift lid and turn halibut 90 degrees and close lid. Cook fish 8 more minutes, until it flakes easily when touched with a fork. Remove halibut and serve with tomato vinaigrette. Tear basil leaves over fillets immediately before serving.
