    Grilled Halibut with Sunkist(R) Cara Cara Oranges & Walnut Romesco
    (Serves 4)

    4 8-ounce halibut fillets
    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    2 medium-sized Sunkist(R) Cara Cara oranges
    3 cups arugula leaves
    1/2 red onion
    2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
    3 cups arugula leaves
    fresh ground black pepper

    1 Sunkist(R) Cara Cara orange
    1/2 shallot
    1 clove garlic
    1/4 cup walnuts
    1/2 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika
    1 teaspoon sweet paprika
    2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
    2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon salt


Cut away the peel and white pith from the Cara Cara oranges. Cut segments into 1/4″ rounds.

Slice red onion and toss with rounds of oranges, sherry vinegar and remaining olive oil. Allow to marinate for one hour.

Prepare barbecue or grill pan (medium-high heat). Brush halibut fillets with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until just opaque in center, about 4 minutes per side.

Toss oranges and red onions with arugula and season with salt and fresh ground pepper.

Divide arugula among 4 plates; top with grilled halibut, a healthy dollop of the Cara Cara Orange Romesco and garnish with the Cara Cara orange rounds.


Cut the Cara Cara oranges into six wedges. Remove inner white skin and seeds. Cut each wedge into smaller pieces. Using a food processor, add garlic, shallot and orange. Puree on high until the orange begins to break down. Add walnuts, paprikas and sherry vinegar and continue to puree. Add olive oil in a steady stream until fully incorporated and season with salt.
