Lightbulb Grapefruit Sauce

I love Halibut, and now I grill it -whether steak or filet. I don't put sauce on, maybe squeeze a lemon over the top & tiny pinch of salt.

However, I had monkfish w/ grapefruit sauce at at local restuarant a couple of months back & it blew me away. It wasn't smothered in it & hardly enough to sop up w/ the rice. I've been intrigued w/ it ever since. I've found some recipes online for sauce but nothing seems to fit what I had w/ the monkfish.

If anyone has an idea with Grapefruit I would certainly welcome it.

Salsa verde. Tomatillos, green onion, garlic, cilantro, lemon or lime juice (I lean toward lime), and a serrano chili (or not). Blend until nearly homogenized. No cooking necessary. Sauce on plate, grilled halibut on sauce, garnish with fresh cilantro sprig. Easily turns into killer fish tacos with shredded lettuce or green cabbage, diced tomato and warm corn tortillas. A nice side of Corona. Summer in Baja.

I second this notion.

If you don't like chicken fried steak, then I don't like you.
