  • 1 pound halibut cheeks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 4 to 5 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon chopped chives

  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped dill
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup white zinfandel
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Cooking Directions:

Preheat the grill.


In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until translucent. Add the salt, chives, lemon zest, lemon juice, dill, and wine and reduce by 1/3. Add olive oil and capers and stir. Remove from the heat.


In a large foil square, place a spoonful of sauce. Add 1 piece of fish, cover with more sauce, and wrap tightly. Repeat with the remaining fish. Place the packets on the grill and grill for 5 minutes on each side. May also be baked for 12 Min @ 350 degrees
