Chimichurri Halibut Tacos with Roasted Corn Salsa

Posted: Updated:

• 10 large ears corn, husked
• 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
• Salt and freshly ground pepper
• 1 cup diced red onion, 1/4-inch dice
• 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or more to taste
• 1/2 cup julienne fresh basil leaves
• ½  cup cilantro
• 1 cup diced tomato
• ½ cup diced red bell peppers
• 4 fire roasted jalapenos
• Juice of one lime

Brush the corn liberally with olive oil and season well with salt and pepper. Grill, turning every few minutes, until light gold all over and cooked, about 12 minutes. Let cool and cut off the kernels. Discard the cobs.
Put the onions in the non-reactive medium bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the vinegar. Let marinate until the color changes, about 10 minutes.
Add the lime juice,diced tomato, red bell, jalapeno, cilantro, onions, basil, and 1/3 cup olive oil to the corn. Toss well. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt, pepper, and remaining vinegar. The salsa is best eaten the same day but will keep, covered and refrigerated, a day or so.
