Grilled Fish with Strawberry Salsa

Heart Healthy

Here is a recipe I found in Heart Healthy Living magazine.  I love the idea of strawberry salsa, sweet and spicy.  This recipe is for grilled fish, but you could also pan sear or broil it.

Grilled Fish with Strawberry Salsa

Serves 4

4 – 5 oz fresh or frozen sea bass or halibut steaks, 1 inch thick
1 small lime
1/4  tsp salt
1/4  tsp cayenne pepper
1  cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/4  cup finely chopped seeded fresh poblano chile pepper (1/2 of a small)
2 Tbs snipped fresh cilantro
1/2  tsp cumin seeds, toasted*
1/8  tsp salt

Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Finely shred lime peel. Peel, section, and chop lime; set aside. In a small bowl combine lime peel, the 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the cayenne pepper. Sprinkle evenly over both sides of each fish steak; rub in with your fingers.

Arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place fish on the greased grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill for 7 to 9 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, gently turning once halfway through grilling time.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl combine chopped lime, strawberries, chile pepper, cilantro, cumin seeds, and the 1/8 teaspoon salt. Serve with grilled fish.

Tip: To toast cumin seeds, in a small skillet heat cumin seeds over medium heat until fragrant, shaking skillet occasionally.
