Grilled Halibut with Peach and Pepper Salsa

Wow! This recipe is amazing! The juicy peaches combined with the fiery Serrano pepper make a spicy-sweet flavor that will make you taste buds scream in delight! When my cooking light magazine came in the mail and had this recipe as its cover feature, my mouth started to water. I could not wait to try it out. Like it extra spicy? Try it with a habanero pepper instead.
