Halibut with Strawberry Salsa

Strawberry salsa is served with grilled fish

Halibut is a large bottom fish that looks like flounder but it’s a whole lot bigger. It has a mild taste and a meaty texture. Unfortunately, halibut is a little expensive and can be hard to find. So feel free to substitute with any other white fish. I’ve also served grilled chicken with the strawberry salsa when I didn’t have fish.
