Am having people on Sunday and want a good recipe. I love this fish, but find I usually end up doing the same old thing - marinate and grill. Any new ideas? I am up for grilling, or in the oven, but would prefer not to pan fry. Feel free to add accompaniments and wine recommendations. My guests are not really "into wine".

This is great (with halibut or scallops also).
