We guarantee that after tasting one bite of this summery dish, you'll want to head right back to the kitchen and make another batch of the tropical salsa. Tangy and fruity with eye-popping color, the mango salsa is fantastic with this halibut, but try it other types of fish too.
2 cups plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 1/2 cups diced peeled ripe mango
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and garlic.
Rub halibut with oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Place fish on grill rack; grill 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with mango salsa.

Overall, this is a very good basic recipe. After making it the first time, I thought it begged for more zing. Salsa refers to "spicy," and with apologies for taking over the recipe, I suggest that this is more of a fresh sauce than a salsa. So, I added a heaping teaspoon of Lee Kum Kee Chili Garlic Sauce. Worked great--this is my standby when I don't want to chop fresh chilies, otherwise I would have added one jalepeno, seeded, deribbed, and minced. I left out the vinegar and added the juice of one fresh lime, half a finely chopped red onion for color, and left out the sugar as the mango was very sweet. I also put the halibut in a plastic zip bag with a minced clove of garlic, olive oil, the juice of 1/2 a lime, s & p, a huge handful of chopped cilantro, and the remaining 1/4 cup of chopped red onion; and marinated it for 2 hours. Yahoooo! Served it with jasmine rice and lime wedges. My guests devoured it!! Thank you for your recipe.
This was a HIT in my house! The mango salsa was so yummy & easy that we were digging into it with chips. Great mango salsa recipe to make for get-togethers. The only negative was that it took me forever to chop everything up, but I'm slow! Used grilling directions from "grilled halibut, fennel, & tomatoes" recipe (brush w/olive oil, S&P, 450-degree grill ten minutes, turning once, lid closed, oiled grill) & it came out perfect! Great combo of flavors. Hubby loved it & 3-year-old too. Will make again. Used Splenda instead of sugar & added a little extra.
Super easy and delicious fish recipe. Can be used with a variety of white fish (tilapia is a favorite). The salsa can be made a few hours or even a day before - it keeps great! Perfect for a an easy wknight meal or even for guests.
