Recipe from Cooking Light

A fresh fruit salsa is a lovely accompaniment to grilled fish in the summer; try it also with striped bass or arctic char. Here, the season's juiciest peaches pair with fiery habanero pepper for a sweet-spicy flavor. Leave the peaches unpeeled for more color and texture.

Ingredients

  • Salsa:
  • 1 1/3 cups coarsely chopped peeled yellow peaches (about 1 pound)
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1 medium)
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh arugula
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 4 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 habanero pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Fish:
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless halibut fillets
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
