When I decided to prepare this recipe, I didn't have time to marinate the halibut for an hour, so I baked the fish with the sauce over the top. This turned out absolutely fantastic! I recommend this alternative to the broiled method.

Really easy to make and it got rave reviews! I'll add a little more OJ next time and cut the dijon a tad, but overall this is a very nice recipe! Thanks!

This is a definate keeper. We did it with mahi-mahi. The flavor combinations should work with most firm fleshed fish [it would over-power anything that has a delicate flavor]. I did it on the grill [5 minutes per side]. I marinated for about 4 hours which only seemed to improve the flavor.
