Pan-Seared Halibut with Citrus Salsa


Halibut is one of my favorite fishes because it's so meaty, not very "fishy" and it develops a beautiful crust when pan-seared. A light, fruity topping like this citrus salsa is the perfect compliment (especially this time of year when citrus is in season). 

Serve this with steamed veggies and/or quinoa for a refreshing meal with lots of nutritional benefits.




1. Combine garlic, lemon juice, white wine and olive oil in a small bowl.

2. Place halibut portions in a shallow dish and pour marinade over. Marinate for 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

3. Meanwhile, combine the salsa ingredients in a small bowl.





4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Season halibut with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until a nice golden brown crust forms and the fish is cooked through.



5. Transfer the halibut to a serving platter and spoon salsa over.
