Prepare an easy and delicious dinner by seasoning halibut with salt and pepper and grilling it for eight minutes. Then top the halibut with a zesty and hearty avocado salsa. You'll want to wait to dice the avocado in the salsa right before serving. If you need to slow the ripening process on the avocados, you can put them in the refrigerator. This avocado salsa also makes a great topping for tacos or burritos. When grilling fish, choose firm, thicker varieties, like halibut, that won't flake and fall through the grate.
