Fish is something we eat in our home every week. We don’t discriminate on the type of fish we eat. We love all kinds of fish.

A few weeks ago I cooked Halibut for the first time. I’ve eaten Halibut several times, but I have never cooked it before.

Halibut is a lean fish with a mild taste. Similar to tilapia but thicker and firmer than Cod.

I created a simple Grilled Halibut with Watermelon Salsa. This is perfect for grilling season.
