This recipe was fabulous! A great combination of sweet and spicy. I would recommend heating the grill up and oiling it more. My fish wasn't crusty on the outside, which I think would have been better. I used jalapeno for the pepper, and because we don't like oregano, put only 1/4 tsp dry oregano. My guests raved about this dish.
Grilled Halibut with Peach and Pepper Salsa
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.
