Preparation time 15 minutes; Cook time 15 minutes
Makes 4 Servings
Tangy Fruit Salsa
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon honey
1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained and coarsely chopped
1 can (8 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained
1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely diced
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, chopped or 1/2 Tablespoon dried chives
2 teaspoons each lemon peel and chopped cilantro
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes or organic cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
4 Alaskan halibut fillet portions (6 oz each), thawed
2 Tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Combine lemon juice and honey in medium mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss together gently.
Mixture can be made several hours ahead and refrigerated until ready to serve.
Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat (450ºF).
Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Brush both sides of halibut with oil.
Place on a spray-coated broiling pan or well-oiled grill, 5 to 6 inches from heat, and cook about 5 minutes. Turn halibut over and sprinkle with sea salt. Cook an additional 7 to 10 minutes for frozen fillets or 4 to 6 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
Remove halibut to individual serving plates and top with spoonfuls of salsa.
