The sweet and spicy salsa adds wonderful flavor and contrasting texture to the beautifully grilled halibut.

Make sure the mango is very ripe.

  • 1 large
    very ripe mango, finely diced
  • 1 small
    serrano chili, minced (or to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp
    fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp
    fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1/4 c
    jicama, finely diced
  • 2 Tbsp
    fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp
  • 1/2 tsp
    black pepper
  • 4
    halibut fillets or steaks, each about 6 ounces
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 2 large
    limes, cut into wedges, for garnish

How to Make Grilled Halibut With Mango Salsa


  1. Toss the mango into a large bowl with the chiles, cilantro, mint, jicama and lime juice. Season with salt if desired. Cover the bowl, and allow to sit for an hour while you prepare your grill.
  2. Heat a medium-hot grill (or heat an indoor griddle or grill pan). Season the halibut fillets or steaks with salt and pepper, and toss with the olive oil in a bowl. Place the fish directly over the coals, and grill for four to five minutes per side, depending on the thickness. The fish should be opaque all the way through, and you should be able to pull it apart with a fork.
  3. Remove halibut to a plate or a platter. Serve with the salsa spooned partially over the fish and partially on the side. Alternately, spoon the salsa onto plates and set the fish on top.
  4. Garnish each serving with 2 lime wedges, and serve immediately.
