Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 25 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • Pineapple Salsa:
  • 2 c pineapple, ½-inch dice
  • ½ c spring onions or scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 c red pepper, 1/2 inch dice
  • 1 Tbsp flat-leaf parsley, minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  •  
  • Ginger Garlic Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 Tbsp garlic , minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger (we think a microplane works best)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 c ketchup
  • 1/4 c mustard
  • 1/4 c apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  •  
  • Bacon-Wrapped Halibut:
  • 12-16 pieces of good bacon
  • 1 pound of halibut, cut into cubes roughly the thickness of your bacon toothpicks (if yours are MIA in your kitchen, just sear the bacon seam side down first)
  • 1 oz manchego cheese, grated
  • 8-12 flour tortillas

Directions

Pineapple Salsa

Combine in a large bowl. Set aside. This can be done the night before.

Barbecue Sauce

Sauté garlic and ginger in a small sauce pan over medium heat for one minute. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer sauce for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Bacon-Wrapped Halibut

Wrap each piece in a slice of bacon, ensuring the bacon is wrapped all the way around the halibut with a little overlap.  Depending on how big the halibut piece, this will require somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 of a slice of bacon. Attach the bacon to the halibut (and to itself) with a toothpick.

Sear bacon-wrapped halibut for 2-3 minutes a side over medium-high heat. Cover the pan with a lid after flipping to ensure the halibut cooks through. When all pieces of bacon have browned, baste with barbecue sauce, turning to coat.

Taco Assembly

Nestle two pieces of halibut in a flour tortilla, drizzle with extra barbecue sauce and top with pineapple salsa and Manchego cheese to taste.
