Mexican Baked Halibut

Serve with rice, black beans, warm tortillas, and Margaritas for a healthy, festive, Mexican meal! I found this recipe in a magazine one time just before Cinco de Mayo and it has since become a family favorite. Sometimes I flake the halibut and serve as fish tacos in warm tortillas. Any kind of firm white fish will do if you don't happen to have halibut.
