Instructions for Grilled Halibut
- Pat dry the halibut fillets. Drizzle them with oil and seasonings, turning to coat. Allow them to marinade for now.
- Hull and slice the strawberries and set them in a large bowl. Halve the avocados, remove the pit, slice, and scoop with a spoon to add to the strawberries. Stir in red onion, cilantro, lime, and salt.
- Start preheating your grill to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit. While preheating, wash the cauliflower and cut it into bite-sized pieces. In batches, add them to your food processor or blender and pulse until they break down to the consistency of rice.
- Lay out the cauliflower rice across a large tea towel and squeeze out any extra moisture over the sink or a bowl.
- Add the coconut flakes alone to the blender and pulse until broken down a bit smaller than grain-sized pieces.
- Once the grill is ready, place the halibut filets and grill until flaky and the internal temperature reads 145 degrees. This might be about 3–4 minutes on either side, depending on the thickness of the fish.
- Combine the cauliflower and coconut flakes in a pan and sauté over medium-high heat, until the coconut begins to toast — it will probably take 5–7 minutes. Stir in the salt, zest, and lime juice.
- Plate together, and enjoy!
