Grilled Halibut with Black Lava Salt & Watermelon Salsa

By Josie Ross

Serves 4 The juxtaposition of the white fish with the black salt and red salsa makes for a striking presentation, and the addition of the green from the cilantro perks up the plate just enough. Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ cup diced (1/4-inch) watermelon
  • 2 medium sized tomatoes, cut in small dice
  • 1 jalapeno chile, seeded, membranes removed, and minced
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons light olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4 4- to 6-ounce halibut steaks
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoon olive oil
  • Cyprus Black Sea Salt Flakes
To make salsa: In a medium bowl, combine watermelon, tomatoes, jalapeno, and garlic. In a separate bowl, combine rice vinegar, honey and black pepper. Whisk in the oil. Drizzle dressing over salsa, stir in cilantro. Oil the grill. Then, heat grill over medium-high heat. Pat the fish dry with paper towels, salt and pepper. Grill fish about four minutes, turn over and allow to cook until it is cooked through (about 4 more minutes). Place steaks on four plates, spoon salsa alongside, drizzle with olive oil and then finish with a sprinkling of Black Sea Salt. Recipe courtesy of
