  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


Tangy Fruit Salsa:

  • 2 Tbsp fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 can (11 oz) Mandarin Oranges, chopped
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pineapple Chunks
  • 1/4 cup Red Bell Pepper, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh Chives, chopped
  • 2 tsp each Lemon Peel & chopped Cilantro
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


Prepare Salsa: 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.

Prepare Halibut: Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat (450ºF). Rinse any ice glaze from 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 seasoning salt. Cook an additional 4 to 6 minutes. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Remove halibut to individual serving plates and top with spoonfuls of salsa.
