The vinaigrette is great and adds just the right snap to the halibut. It's easy to make and clean up as well. Great recipe for cooking halibut. It was a hit with the kids too.

The only thing I did differently is I doubled the marinade and had it in 2 different bowls. One for prior to cooking and one for after it was cooked. Very yummy!
