Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

1 pound thickly cut halibut fillet
2 teaspoons sea salt
2 teaspoons coarse black pepper
1 tablespoon Homemade Grill Seasoning, recipe follows
Citrus Marinade, recipe follows
Olive oil
2 whole-wheat pitas
Red leaf lettuce, optional
2 cups Cucumber-Pineapple Salsa, recipe follows

Directions

Season both sides of the halibut with salt, pepper and grill seasoning. Add the halibut to the bowl with the marinade and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Heat the grill to medium.

Remove halibut from the marinade and discard the marinade. Brush the grill with olive oil and grill the halibut until flaky, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer the halibut to a platter.

Brush both sides of the pitas with olive oil and grill for 30 seconds on each side. Cut the pockets in half so they are the shape of half moons.

Divide the halibut into 4 pieces. Tuck a piece of red leaf lettuce, if using, into each pita pocket along with 1 piece of the halibut. Top with 1/2 cup of the Cucumber-Pineapple Salsa and serve.
