Halibut with Grapefruit-Mango Salsa

Halibut, Grapefruit-Mango Salsa, Asparagus
Yesterday turned out to be a really nice day and so Ann suggested putting something on the grill. I picked up a piece of halibut at Costco, a nice even piece, perfect for grilling. I don't eat much halibut because I believe it to be overfished and not a well-regulated fishery. This would be the first time in a decade. I didn't have a lot of choices at Costco and this was the only fish that they had that is really suitable for the grill. Halibut, because of its meaty nature, grills like a dream.

I grabbed a couple pink grapefruits, an Ataulfo mango, a bunch of cilantro, and a jalapeno at the mercado on the way home. These got combined with a shallot, sambal oelek, and sherry vinegar to make a sweet-sour salsa. The pink grapefruit was sweeter than the golden mango.

To go with the fish, I roasted asparagus from the farmers market for a few minutes in a really hot oven.

Quick, simple, and easy.
