Blackened Halibut with Mango Pineapple Salsa is sure to become your new favorite fish dish! This is a restaurant quality meal that you can prepare at home and your family will love! You will not want to lose this recipe!

Why do I need to brine my fish before cooking?

By soaking your fish for ten minutes in a sea-salt brine (1 tablespoon sea salt per 4 cups of cold water), it will keep your fish from falling apart while cooking, boost flavor and moisture, and get rid of the unsightly patches of white albumin that forms on fish when cooking.

Directions

  • Brine fish by adding 1 Tbsp. sea salt per 4 cups of cold water in a dish. Add fish to salt water brine and let sit for at least 10 minutes.
  • Rinse fish in cold water and pat dry. Liberally add blackened seasoning to both sides of fish. Add butter to a hot cast iron skillet and melt before adding fish. Cook 5-6 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily with fork.
  • Serve immediately, and top with our fresh Mango Pineapple Salsa. Enjoy!

  • In a medium bowl add diced ingredients, lime juice, pineapple juice, and salt.
  • Stir to mix well.
