Grilled Halibut With Pineapple Chipotle Salsa

“Halibut is a low fat, very mild flavored fish with a firm flaky meat. It is easily available year round, relatively inexpensive, easy to grill and lends itself to almost any flavor. I found this recipe in the local Living Magazine & was intrigued by the salsa. I'm sure it would be wonderful with any mild fish such as grouper, flounder or snapper.”

Directions

  1. Plump raisins in rum for 30 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat grill to medium high heat. Brush pineapple slices with oil & grill until lightly caramelized on both sides. Cool & cut into 1/2" pieces; put in mixing bowl.
  3. Combine chipotles, lime juice, orange zest & juice. Whisk in olive oil. Pour over pineapple chunks, fold in green onion, red pepper, cilantro & raisins. Salt to taste. Set aside.
  4. Brush halibut heavily with oil & grill just until fish is opaque throughout, gently turning once. The grilling time on halibut is pretty short so keep a close eye on it to avoid over cooking. *** A 1-inch halibut steak will grill up in about 10 minutes over a medium high heat. Thinner cuts and fillets can cook in as little time as 6 minutes.
  5. Serve topped with salsa.
