    Karlyn R's Note:

    This recipe has a very distinct taste from the marinade used. You could substitute the halibut for any other white fish. This recipe was found in my local newspaper when they listed the best recipes from the year.

      Both my husband and I loved the flavor. He thought the turmeric was a bit overpowering- but I had used fresh (not dry) and probably didn't chop it fine enough. I will definitely make again. Served with Sliced orange rice #157894 and gingered yam soup #157663 - great meal.
