I really love this sauce and this is my favorite recipe for a sauce for fish. It is excellent with halibut, but would be good on other types as fish as well. You can bake the halibut any way you like. I prefer to lightly season mine with salt, pepper and paprika and bake in a convection oven. It is important not to overcook fish, so I always use a meat thermometer and cook it until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees. Convection oven cooking works great for fish.
