Spring Halibut Recipe

Here is a terrific halibut recipe to make the most of fresh strawberries and tangerines. This recipe is great anytime, but works well for Day 4 of the 5 Day Pouch Test. Serve it to your family: they won't even know it is "diet" food.

Alaskan Halibut with Strawberry, Tangerine & Fresh Basil Salsa

32 Ounces halibut fillets
kosher salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
16 ounces strawberries, fresh, diced medium
3 each tangerines, peeled, seeded, diced medium
1 Tablespoon basil, fresh, shredded
1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Combine the strawberries, tangerines, basil, vinegar, pepper, and salt in a mixing bowl. Toss to completely mix, and allow to marinate for 30 minutes prior to using.

Preheat an oven to 300°F. Season the fish lightly with salt and pepper and grill over medium heat, or prepare in the oven. Remove the cooked fish, arrange on dinner plates or serving platter, and ribbon the salsa over the top of the fish.
