In honor of its recent designation as a sustainable fishery, we present a rather “retro” Polynesian-style recipe for Alaskan halibut.
Alaskan Halibut with Tangy Fruit Salsa
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 15 minutes
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons honey
1 can (11 oz) mandarin oranges, drained and coarsely chopped
1 can (8 oz) pineapple tidbits, drained
1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely diced
1 Tablespoon fresh chives, chopped or 1/2 Tablespoon dried chives
2 teaspoons lemon peel or 1/2 teaspoon dried lemon peel
4 Alaskan Halibut fillets (6 oz each)
2 Tablespoons organic extra virgin olive or macadamia nut 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.
- Brush both sides of halibut with oil. Place on a spray-coated broiling pan or well-oiled grill, 5 to 6 inches from heat. Cook 5 minutes.
- Turn halibut over and sprinkle with seasoning salt. Cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, just until fish is opaque throughout.
- Remove halibut to individual serving plates and top with spoonfuls of salsa.
