Citrus Lime Halibut With Papaya and Avocado Salsa
Papaya Avocado Salsa
Mix all of the salsa ingredients together. For optimal flavor, let the salsa sit for 30 minutes. Combine the marinade ingredients and whisk until thoroughly blended. Then coat the halibut in 3 Tbsp marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly oil an ovenproof pan large enough to accommodate all of the fillets in a single layer.
Pat the fillets dry with paper towels and place them in the prepared pan. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the fish is opaque and flakes easily. To be certain the fish is done, push a two-pronged kitchen fork straight down into the flesh.
Drizzle the remainder of the marinade on top of the fish. Top with papaya salsa. Serve immediately. (Remainder can be stored refrigerated in airtight container for 5 days.)
Note: If desired, serve fish and salsa on a warmed corn tortilla spread with guacamole, and top with shredded lettuce or cabbage slaw.
