Grilled Halibut with Mango Salsa

15 Oct

Grilled halibut steaks topped with a cold salsa made with mango, pineapple, onion, serrano chili, lemon and lime juice, and fresh cilantro.

-By Carrie (Strommen) Lennie


1 ½ cups mango, finely chopped
¾ cup pineapple, finely chopped
3 Tbsp red onion, finely chopped
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
¼ cup fresh orange juice
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 halibut steaks, each 1 inch thick (1 lb total)


  1. In a bowl, combine the mango, pineapple, onion, Serrano, and orange and lime juices. Mix in the cilantro and ¼ teaspoon salt, or more to taste. Season with pepper. Set aside for 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  2. Prepare the gas grill for direct-heat grilling over high heat. Oil the grill rack. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Using tongs, place the fish directly over the heat elements and grill, turning once, until the fish is opaque in the center at its thickest part, 5-7 minutes per side.
  4. Remove the skin from the fish, divide each steak in half, and transfer to warmed individual plates. Spoon one-fourth of the salsa on each piece of fish and serve.
