Pan-Roasted Halibut with Tomato Peach Salsa

after my trip to the dekalb farmers market, i walked away with all the simple ingredients to whip up this "fancy feast". this summer-y tomato peach salsa was such a unique blend of what i love about summer-tomatoes, peaches, balsamic & fresh herbs. a perfect topper for chicken, fish or tortilla chips!

what's your favorite summer ingredient?!
