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
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.
