Piri Piri Halibut w/ Peach Salsa Print Email

Peach Salsa – recipe follows
2 LBS Alaskan Halibut Fillets
African Piri Piri Rub (‘Rub With Love’ brand)
Picual Olive oil
Veggies and greens

Have your butcher skin halibut and cut into 4 servings. Prepare peach salsa and set aside. Rinse halibut filet and rub in Piri Piri spice, covering all surfaces well.

Preheat a heavy skillet over medium high heat (360° F). Add 2-3 TBS olive oil and halibut fillets. Brown nicely on all sides.

Scatter plate with salad ingredients – I suggest layers of shredded cabbage, cucumber, tomatoes and watercress. Serve halibut on greens with plenty of peach salsa – which blends with juice from the halibut to perfectly dress the salad. – Chef Michaelangelo (mick) Rosacci, www.TonysMarket.com
