BBQ Halibut with Mango Salsa

I love summer! It is my absolute favorite time of the year - the sunshine, the bright colours, the warm air and the general feeling of happiness and lightness in the air. I love to transfer those colours and feelings onto my plate at meal time - anything bright, light and fun and I'm in! That's exactly what this dish is all about. Summertime on a plate!

BBQ Halibut with Mango Salsa
Recipe by A Tale of One Foodies Culinary Adventures


  • Two pieces of fresh halibut
  • 1 tsp each: cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, ground coriander, sugar, salt and pepper
  • 1/2 an avocado, diced
  • 1 mango, diced
  • 1 small jalapeƱo, diced
  • 3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Arugula
  • Sprouts (any kind will do)
  • Pea shoots
  • a handful of tortilla strips
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • drizzle of olive oil
  1. For the halibut - preheat your grill. Sprinkle spice rub evenly over both sides of the halibut. Pat the spice rub into the fish. Grill seasoned halibut on the grill until just cooked through and remove from heat.
  2. While the halibut is cooking, combine the salsa ingredients and stir well. Set aside to let the flavours marry.
  3. Divide arugula, sprouts and pea shoots between two places. Drizzle with lime juice and olive oil. Sprinkle with tortilla strips. Top with grilled halibut and spoon salsa over liberally. Enjoy!
