Have a chicken enchilada recipe that's very similar to this. Had never thought of using fish for some reason. Tried this substituting a mild white fish. Worked great. Love halibut however when when we can find it here it's pushing $20/lb. Lucky you that you have it locally! Thanks for the idea/recipe.
