Grilled Halibut with Mango Citrus Salsa

There exists in Anchorage a fabulous supermarket called New Sagaya. They have two equally fabulous locations, both serving the also fabulous local roasted Kaladi Bros coffee and aaaaaaaamazing food!
Locally owned, Sagaya specializes in yummy specialty ingredients and foods, and are locally and possibly universally renowned for amazing seafood.
Yesterday, as I was making a pilgrimage to the Midtown location for some local Matanuska Creamery cheese curds for my cheese-country-raised husband as a treat since he’s been working crazy hours of late, I heard the radio announce fresh halibut at New Sagaya.
What a happy happy happy camper that made me. I love halibut. Though a large part of me cringes at paying for fish that I could catch, the other 50% of me is starving for fresh halibut, which I haven’t had in 3 years. As I perused the aisles, getting my favorite Sagaya staples and sodium free canned veggies, I kept passing by the fish market area, daring myself to go in. Then the second half of me, the half that craves fresh halibut, won.
At the entrance were whole fresh halibut… which I bypassed because I wanted some K help in fileting them. However, sitting there in the display case, in all their beautiful glory, were fresh fresh fresh halibut filets. I couldn’t say no.
I also picked up a mango to go with the dish, thinking surely I had enough great ingredients for a fabulously amazing meal… sure to please hubby and just about any other person with an inquiring mind.

Grilled Halibut with Mango Citrus Salsa

fresh halibut filet (ours was 1 1/4 pounds)
olive oil
Look at this BEAUTIFUL halibut filet. I bet you couldn’t have said no either.
Rub olive oil into the filet. Season with salt and pepper.
Grill for 3 minutes on each side, or until the fish is white and flaky throughout.

Mango Citrus Salsa

You may remember this Orange-Avocado salsa from January. This salsa is based on that salsa. I think it’s even better.
3 small oranges, peeled, sectioned and chopped
1 large ripe avocado, peeled and diced
1 ripe tomato, diced
1 kiwi, diced
1 large mango, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/2 red onion, minced
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
2 small garlic cloves, crushed and sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper
1 tbsp your favorite fiery hot sauce (sriracha is good)
Mix fruits, jalapeno, onion and cilantro together.
In a small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Then drizzle the mixture over the salsa mix.

When both halibut and citrus salsa are ready, serve salsa over halibut. Enjoy this ode to fresh foods!

    I don’t see much halibut in our local grocery store… but this looks really good. I like fruit salsa in the summer time. My favorite is pineapple pico de gallo. Thanks for the culinaru inspiration.
