Recipe Summary

40 mins
4 cups salsa, 1 lb 4 oz. halibut


Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • To make the watermelon salsa, combine the watermelon, mango, red onion, jalapeño peppers, the juice and zest of two of the limes (6 Tbsp. juice and 2 tsp. zest), cilantro, mint and salt in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Refrigerate until needed.

  • To prepare the fish, place the halibut fillets in a glass dish. Drizzle the oil and the juice of the remaining lime (3 Tbsp. juice, 1 tsp. zest) over the fillets and allow them to marinate for 10 minutes, turning the filets halfway through.

  • Oil the skin side of the fish, and place skin-side down on a preheated grill pan. Tent lightly with foil. Grill fish over medium-high heat, turning once, until opaque all the way through and fish flakes easily with a fork, 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish.

  • To serve, spoon salsa over fish filets using a slotted spoon.
