I had some grapefruit juice to use up, and decided to try this recipe. We liked it! I used 1.5 lbs. of tilapia instead of halibut because that is what I had on hand. I had to look for the fennel bulb, and found it in my local fruit and vegetable store. I cooked the fish on a foil-lined cookie sheet, with just a little of the oil and grapefruit juice mix on top. The grapefruit juice seemed a little tart, but maybe it was the juice I used. I will make this again, and maybe try adding a little orange juice to sweeten it. Thanks for this one, Swirlycinnacakes
