Grilled Halibut with Peach & Pepper Salsa

I used tilapia fillets instead of halibut since it was $25 a pound!! Ridiculous. Fresh tilapia was about $3.50 a pound so I opted for the less expensive. It turned out great though. Most of the ingredients came straight from my garden so the flavors were impeccable.

Yield: 6     (serving size: 1 fillet + 2/3 cup salsa)


2 1/2 cups coarsely chopped peeled yellow peaches (about 1 1/4 lbs.)

1 1/2 cups chopped red bell pepper (about 1 large)

1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions

1/2 cup chopped fresh arugula or baby spinach

1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)

2 tbsp. chopped fresh oregano

1/4 tsp. salt

1 habanero pepper, seeded and minced

1 garlic clove, minced


2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 tsp. paprika

2 garlic cloves, minced

6 (6-oz.) skinless halibut fillets

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
