  1. Place the halibut steaks in a shallow non-metallic dish. Mix together the oil, orange juice and garlic, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture over the fish steaks.
  2. Combine all the salsaingredients, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Spoon into a serving bowl.
  3. Heat a ridged grill pan or heavy skillet coated with cooking spray over high heat. Place the fish steaks on the grill pan or in the skillet and cook until the fish flakes easily, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, basting from time to time with the oil mixture.
  4. Place the fish steaks on warm serving plates and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with wedges of orange and serve with the salsa.
Recipe Notes

(Some More Ideas) Other white fish steaks, such as cod, haddock, swordfish or monkfish fillets, can be cooked in the same way.

Tomato and olive salsa: Combine the diced tomatoes with 1 diced cucumber, 4 chopped scallions, 2 tbsp (25 mL) pitted chopped green or black olives and 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh basil. Or use 1 tbsp (15 mL) drained and rinsed capers instead of olives.

In summer, the fish can be cooked outdoors on a barbecue. Lay the steaks on a sheet of foil to prevent the delicate flesh slipping through the grill.
