Grilled Halibut Steak with Mango-Pineapple-Avocado Salsa

Here’s the paleo catch of the day: halibut with a wonderful fruity salsa for a light and luscious meal that’s perfect for your summertime grilling…

whole30 compliant recipe markI think I’ve mentioned once or twice before, I love salsas…and being from the Northwest, quality fish cooked over an open flame is high on my yummy list too.

Well this very easy paleo and gluten-free recipe combines both my faves for a refreshing and nutritious meal I think you’re going to love.

I happened to catch halibut on sale, but this recipe would work just as well with just about any white flesh fish you like.

If you go with the halibut, choose the steak cuts with the bone and cartilage in – they’ll stay together on the grill much better than the smaller fillets. By the way, if you don’t have access to an outdoor grill, you can also prepare the fish on a ridged grill pan hot-oiled over medium heat. [av_sidebar widget_area=’Lockerdome’ av_uid=’av-2soyum’]

As for the mango salsa, it couldn’t be much easier to prepare. It just takes picking up some fresh fruit and veggies at the grocery, and then doing a little slicing and dicing. (if you’re lucky enough to have leftover salsa from this meal, try it on the side with whatever else you’re preparing the next day – it goes with almost anything!)

Serve your freshly grilled fish with some healthy scoops of the salsa piled on top and you’ve got an awesome paleo dish, especially rich in Omega-3s from the halibut and avocado.

Enjoy paleo peeps!
