Don't feel like fish? This bright salsa will also perk up chicken or pork.


  • 2 avocados, diced small

  • 2 cups finely diced pineapple

  • 1 jalapeno, minced

  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped

  • ½ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 6 skin-on halibut fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)

  • Arugula, for serving


  1. Heat broiler, with rack in upper third. In a medium bowl, stir together avocados, pineapple, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with salt.

  2. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray and place fish, skin side down, on sheet; season with salt and pepper. Broil until fish is opaque throughout, about 8 minutes. Top fish with salsa and serve with arugula.
