Bacon Wrapped Grilled Halibut Steaks

"We love the zippy flavor using jalapenos and cilantro to grilled whitefish. I use a fish rack with handle on the grill, some may want to use a drip pan, others might want to place fish on a greased piece of foil and others may want to plop these right on the grill rack....whatever! I have also broiled these, but there's nothing like the flavor of things when grilled! I serve this with a Mango Salsa Ole, Recipe #235769 on the side and a lettuce salad using a ginger-flavored vinagarette."

  1. I havent tried this yet - but it sounds fantastic. I added stars because I didnt want to skew your ratings! I'll be back after I try it this weekend ;-)


I've loved Zaar for many years and the great recipes I've found here. Back when I was working and the kids were little I was an okay cook who excelled only at a few family recipes. I began "surfing" on Zaar and started making so many wonderful fast and easy recipes. As they got older and I had more time, I began making more adventurous meals. Zaar's fabulous cooks have helped me every step of the way. Thanks to the Zaar family of cooks and the enthusiasm for cooking I developed through them, I'm now considered a good cook and develop many of my own recipes. When the kids were grown and I was no longer working, what started as a place to find new recipes turned into a community made up of varied and interesting people. After years as a "recipe surfer", I became a premium member in 2005 not only to start organizing recipes but also to participate even more in discussions, forum activities and having fun with new friends. I am hoping you enjoy the recipes I have posted and welcome comments. I try to thank everyone who reviews one of them, but if I "drop the ball" or if you can't receive Zmail, please know how much I appreciate you taking the time to make one of my recipes. I'm a dinosaur when it comes to taking digital photos of my recipes and getting them into my computer. Because of that, cyberhugs go out to anyone who takes the time to take/post pictures of my dishes in Zaar! I've had vision problems plus a retina disease called retinopathy prematuria since birth, but never let it stop me until the last few years when I had to quit driving becauser of it. I moved from "sweet home Chicago" to rural San Diego County, CA, in 2004 when my husband of 35 years retired. Sadly, we are not near our children and beautiful grandchildren, who live in Florida, Minnesota and Arizona. Zaar has helped the transition from moving from the city to the country and becoming an empty nester confined to home a little more bearable. I still love to read my grisly crime novels, play on the computer, and play blackjack at local casinos (within reason, of course??) Even though my old friends tease that I'm a cross between a dirty old lady and a mother hen, Zaarites seem to bear with me. I think I love going to restaurants more because of reading the menus than eating the food. My best-friend says when I die I'm going to go to the big menu in the sky! .....2/25/10.....<a href=""><img border="0" src="" alt="Web Counter"></a><a href="">.....Cheap Digital Camera</a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Zaar friends"> <a href=""><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href= target="_blank"> <img src=""></a><img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="coolmonday-particiation" title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=""> Sharon123: <a href=""target="_blank"><img src=""border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
