Halibut with Zesty Ontario Peach Salsa

There’s nothing quite like the taste of halibut to evoke a feeling of Canada’s East Coast - it is one of their regional treasures. Pair it with one of Ontario’s most beloved fruits, the peach, and you have a refreshingly light summer meal. If you can’t find halibut, it is easily substituted with salmon or char.
