Alaska Halibut caprese salad bites recipe


  • 3 (6 oz portions) Popsie’s Alaskan Halibut
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tsps Italian seasoning 
  • 1 package (12 oz.) arugula
  • 24 fresh mozzarella cheese slices, 1/4 inch thick
  • 24 roma tomato slices, 1/4 inch thick (slice on bias)
  • 24 basil leaves, fresh
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar, to taste
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsps basil, fresh, chiffonade


    Step 1: Prepare Halibut

    • Season Alaska Halibut with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.  Place on a hot oiled grill or grill top.  Cook for 2-4 minutes, then carefully turn and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes, cooking just until fish is opaque throughout.  Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
    • Take skin off, (this is easiest to do once cooked). Cut into 1 inch pieces.

      Step 2: Assemble and serve

      • Place arugula on a serving plate.  Arrange mozzarella slices evenly on the arugula.  Layer with tomato slices and basil leaves.  Top with cooked Halibut pieces and skewer with wooden picks.  Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste.  Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper.  Garnish with basil chiffonade.
