Grilled halibut with nectarine salsa
We only have a little time left with this summer's nectarines, so I'm using them as much as possible. This super simple combination is sweet, tangy & fresh and brightens up the mildness of the halibut.
This salsa would also be really delicious with chopped mint if you aren't a cilantro lover. It would also pair nicely with any grilled fish - salmon in particular - or chicken. If you want to spice it up, add some minced jalapeno - I just had to keep it to 5 ingredients for the Kin Community video (see below).
2 nectarines – diced
½ c. red onion – diced
½ c. cilantro – roughly chopped
juice of one lime
4, 6-ounce halibut fillets – center cut (about one inch think), skin removed
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Mix together nectarines, red onion, cilantro and lime juice.
Season halibut fillets with olive oil, kosher salt & pepper. Place fillets on hot, oiled grill and cook for approximately 4 minutes, or until halibut releases easily from the grill. Flip and cook about 2-3 more minutes – until just cooked through.
Top fish with nectarine salsa and enjoy!!
