Grilled Halibut with Blueberry Salsa

Give halibut a new, summery spin. The salsa may seem sophisticated, but it’s really a cinch to prepare. —Donna Goutermont, Juneau, Alaska

    But I would only make it again because my husband liked it. I didn't like it at all. We used huckleberries rather then blueberries. Put in 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar (because huckleberries are tarter) and I used just a very few think slices of onion but even at that it was way too onion-e for me. We drizzle honey over our fish which DH said made the flavor even better. Not my thing..

    This salsa is fantastic! It is also great over chicken or even to dip tortilla chips!
