Prepare the Fish
Cube the halibut into small pieces that are about 3/8" thick and just under 1" square. Not too thick, not too big.
Marinate in Citrus to Cook
Place the fish and 1/4 of the onion in a ceramic or glass bowl. Sprinkle and mix in a liberal amount of the ground rock salt. Squeeze in the juice of about 10 lemons and 3 limes. Enough to completely cover the fish. Refrigerate. The fish takes about four hours to cook. It's done when it's opaque throughout.
Chop Chop Chop
Once the fish is done cooking, drain and discard the citrus and then chop the tomatoes, avocados, tomatillos, jalapeño, cilantro and onion.
Mix and Serve
In a large mixing bowl mix the chopped ingredients with the fish. Stir in the olive oil and the juice from 2 oranges and 2 limes. Serve over a crisp corn tortilla or bed of lettuce and garnish with a few cilantro leaves.
