Cedar Planked Halibut with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

May 29, 2012

My parents came over for dinner tonight, and my Dad recently lost 30 pounds.  Yay Sonny!!!  He did this by cutting out most carbs and sugar.  He told me for breakfast he does have cereal.

We were sitting around the table tonight talking and laughing.  My dad was a little naughty this weekend.  He did eat at my house two of the nights, so it’s somewhat my fault.

My dad was talking about his diet when my MOM interrupted him and asked me if it’s OK that my Dad eats half a box of cereal in the morning?  And my Dad yells ” I was looking for the toy”.  He’s so funny!

This planked Halibut was really delicious.  I saw a recipe for a blueberry salsa and I was going to make that with the fish, but the blueberries I bought were just OK.  I remembered I had some pineapple cut up and decided to use that instead.  I think this was a meant to be!  The blueberry salsa could never compete with this!!

Enjoy!!! Yummy!!!
