 Halibut with Kiwi Salsa
Angling for a healthy way to prepare seafood, our Test Kitchen came up with a recipe for halibut with a tropical twist. Grilled to tender perfection, the fillets stay moist with a light coating of lemon and oil. They're topped with a fruity salsa of emerald kiwifruit, golden mango and red peppers for an eye-catching presentation.
