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.
