Halibut Steaks with Salsa

Serves 4


4 halibut steaks
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 small orange
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin

For the Salsa                     

200g ripe tomatoes, diced
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 green chillies, finely chopped
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
15g fresh basil, chopped


  • Place the halibut steaks in a shallow non-metallic dish.  Mix together the oil, orange juice, garlic and spices and rub over the fish steaks.
  • Combine all the salsa ingredients.  Taste and season if needed with salt.
  • Heat a lightly oiled ridged cast iron grill pan or heavy-based frying pan over a high heat. Place the fish steaks on the grill pan or in the frying pan and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, basting from time to time with the oil mixture, until the fish will just flake easily.
  • Place the fish steaks on warm serving plates and serve with salsa.
  • For a complete meal serve with a mixed salad and crusty bread too.
