"See You Later" Grilled Orange Halibut
I'm leaving with a very idealistic memory of Providence. I already don't remember any of the bad days here. I'm sure when I think about it months, years, decades from now I'll still only remember my favorite faces, routines, and the first days (make that years) with my boy.
To take my mind off things I suggest you grill this strikingly beautiful fish Memorial Day weekend. Here's how to do it.
Grilled Orange Halibut
2 oranges, sliced
1 lemon, juiced
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
3 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
We ate this with roasted rainbow potatoes and a simple arugula salad.
Add fish and toss gently to coat. Stack the orange slices on top of the fillets and let marinate in the fridge for a couple hours.
Heat your grill then oil it to prevent sticking. I use a paper towel dipped in olive oil.
Place orange slices and fish on grill. Turn after 4-ish minutes or until you think it looks good. If the fish is sticking to the slates it isn't ready to flip.
Serve fish with grilled orange slices for extra juicy squeezing.
