The Verde on the succulent Halibut comes from the cilantro and chili marinade and a silky avocado mayonnaise.

1 cup thinly sliced green onions

3/4 cup (packed) cilantro leaves

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 1/2 tablespoons grated lime peel

1 1/2 tablespoons golden brown sugar

1 tablespoon coarsely chopped seeded jalapeño chili

1 cup alder or hickory smoke chips, soaked in water 30 minutes, drained (OPTIONAL)


Cooking Directions:
 

Blend first 7 ingredients in processor until almost smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Pour marinade into 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Add  Halibut, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, or let stand at room temperature 1 hour, turning fish twice.
