Lime Mahi Mahi (or Halibut)

I first enjoyed this recipe at the Winter Blues Party in Manhattan while a student at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. As halibut comes into season here in the Pacific Northwest, I cannot help but want to transition these flavors over to the fish of my homeland. The lightness of a white fish coupled with refreshing lime illicit visions of sandy white beaches and salty ocean surf. Enjoy!
