Substitution
If halibut is not available, use cod or red snapper.
Success Hint
To test fish for doneness, place a fork in the thickest part and gently twist. The fish will flake easily when done.
Did You Know
You can make your own foil packet by placing food on half of an 18x12-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Fold other half of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making a tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for heat circulation and expansion.
