1.  To make the dressing: Cut a 1/2-inch slice off both ends of each lemon. Cut each lemon in half lengthwise. Lightly brush or spray the cut sides of the lemons with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Grill the lemons over Direct High heat until nicely browned, 4 to 6 minutes, turning once. Remove the lemons from the grill and allow to cool. Squeeze the lemons through a sieve into a small bowl. Discard the rinds and seeds. You should have about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Add the capers, then whisk in the remaining 3 tablespoons oil to form a dressing. Whisk in the rest of the dressing ingredients, and ad just the seasonings if necessary.

2.  To make the rub: In a small bowl, mix the rub ingredients.

3.  Generously brush or spray the halibut on both sides with oil and season with the rub. Grill over Direct High heat until the halibut just begins to flake when you poke it with the tip of a knife, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once.

4.  Whisk the dressing one last time. Serve the fish warm with the dressing poured over the top.
