Halibut Salsa


This is a perfect appetizer for a hot summer evening. Serve it with rice crackers or tortilla chips. The fresh tastes of a salsa and the fresh halibut served like a poke or ceviche. Fresh and delicious they will devour this one!
You will need:
  • 1/2 cup of small diced fresh halibut 
  • 1 tomato - chopped into small dice
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped jalapeno
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 ripe avocado - chopped into small dice
  • 1 clove garlic - chopped fine
  • 4 tbsp mild extra virgin olive oil -I used Domaine Oltremonti
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Step 1: chop halibut and place on paper towel to absorb any additional water while chopping all other ingredients.


Step 2: chop all other ingredients.


Step 3: place fish in a small dish. Zest 1//2 lime and juice entire lime over fish. Drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil and mix. Cover and let stand in fridge for 1 hour to almost cook tender fish in the acid. You can also add some salt here if you want a firmer fish.


Step 4: mix all ingredients together, add extra olive oil and salt and pepper. Adjust as necessary. Serve with chips/crackers and a tequila cocktail.
