Summer is officially here, and to us, that means heading outside and heating up the grill. Here are three delicious, BBS-friendly grill recipes for you to try at your next barbecue!

Grilled Halibut With Avocado Salsa

Ingredients

  • 2 6-ounce halibut filets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Avocado Salsa

  • 1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • ½ shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs basil leaves, slivered
  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill on medium heat. Drizzle the halibut filets with olive oil and season with salt and black pepper. Gently press the fish down on the grate and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.
  2. While fish is cooking, add the sliced cherry tomatoes, avocado, shallot, and basil to a medium-size bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and toss to coat. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Top the fish with the avocado salsa.
