Grilled Halibut with Peach and Pepper Salsa

It is deliciously perfect when cooked on the grill and infused with a smoky, hearty flavor. The peach and pepper salsa is the perfect accompaniment to this dish. It is fresh and light and brings an extra sweet and spicy element. With peaches, green onions, arugula, oregano, garlic, fresh lemon, and red bell peppers you may want to make some extra so you can have a spoonful with every bite!
