- Place the halibut in a large, shallow dish. In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, oil and rosemary for the marinade. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.
- Pour the marinade over the fish, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours. (Marinating gives great flavor and also helps protect animal protein from forming cancer-causing substances on the grill.)
- Drain the fish and discard the marinade. Place the fish on a greased grill 4 inches from the heat source and cook, turning once, until opaque throughout, about 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
- While the fish is cooking you can prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, mix together the tomatoes, basil, scallions, vinegar, 1 tsp of oil, orange rind and a pinch of cayenne pepper, if desired. Whisk until it is well blended. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat the sauce on low heat until warm. Place the grilled fish on a large serving platter. Garnish with some chopped fresh rosemary, if desired, and spoon the sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
