Quick and Light Dinner

Finally, strawberries with flavor have made their way into the markets again. I love spring fruits and vegetables because they are so young and succulent. Because of the bright colors and bold flavors amazing dishes can be easily composed. Here is a recipe for an extremely simple Halibut dish. The strawberry salsa lends an amazing color to a plain white fish. I would serve this dish with some baby asparagus or some broccolinni.


3 Tablespoons plum jam
3 Tablespoons lime juice
½ teaspoons fresh ginger
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 cup strawberries, chopped
½ cup cucumber chopped
2 Tablespoons green onion, sliced
2 Tablespoons cilantro
½ small jalapeño, finely diced

4-6 oz halibut steaks

Combine plum jam, juice, and ginger in a small cup. Set aside three tablespoons and mix it with the salt and pepper
For salsa, mix the remaining sauce with the cucumber, strawberries, onions, jalapeño, and cilantro. Refrigerate until the halibut is broiled.
Place the halibut on a lightly sprayed broiler pan. Brush with reserved plum sauce mixture. Broil for 9 minutes. Serve immediately with salsa.
