Grilled Halibut with Mango-Avocado Salsa Recipe

Photograph by Matt Jones

I found this amazing and simple recipe by Gwyneth Paltrow  in the June 2011 bon appetit magazine. I loved it so much that I couldn’t stop eating it! In fact, (and this may totally gross you out, but I’m trying to convey to you how much I really really loved this recipe) it was so delicious and light that I ate the leftovers cold for breakfast the next day!!

On a side note–This salsa would be great for chicken or pork as well.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium ripe avocado, peeled and cut into 1/2″ dice
  • 1 medium ripe mango, peeled and cut into 1/2″ dice
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 large fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided, plus more for brushing
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 6-ounce halibut or mahi-mahi fillets
  • 4 lime wedges

Preparation

  • Prepare a grill to medium-high heat. Gently combine the avocado, mango, tomatoes, basil, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1 tablespoon lime juice in a large mixing bowl. Season salsa to taste with salt and pepper and set aside at room temperature, gently tossing occasionally.
  • Place fish fillets in a 13x9x2″ glass baking dish. Drizzle remaining 2 tablespoon oil and 2 tablespoon lime juice over. Season fish with salt and pepper. Let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes, turning fish occasionally.
  • Brush grill rack with oil. Grill fish until just opaque in center, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plates. Spoon mango-avocado salsa over fish. Squeeze a lime wedge over each and serve.

Enjoy!
