Halibut, peppers, and onions with lemon and oregano

The relatively simple lemon and herb oil mixture gives this fish and vegetable dish big flavor. One perk of this entrée is that it can be prepared on the grill or in a grill pan so you can enjoy it all year long. Cook the halibut fillets with the skin on so that they don’t fall apart, and then just remove it before serving. The fish, vegetables, and pita all cook at once on the grill, but if you don’t have a large grill or you’re cooking this indoors, you can simply warm the pita in the oven or microwave.
