Grilled Halibut Chimichurri

When it comes to fish, halibut is my favourite. I love the mild taste and meaty texture. It works great on the grill because it doesn't fall apart easily. Served with a delicious chimichurri sauce, this meal was a big hit.

Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce often used on beef. It consists of parsley, chili peppers, garlic, shallots, lemon juice and oil blended together.  I used this recipe from Epicurious.

Add all the ingredients except the oil to a blender or food processor and blend while drizzling in the oil until smooth.

For the fish, season simply with oil, salt and pepper.

Grill until just cooked through, a few minutes per side.

Serve the sauce over the fish with extra sauce on the side.

Delicious, fresh tasting and very healthy.  Served with roasted potatoes and salad.
