Why I Love This Recipe

When you purchase halibut, please don't ask your favorite fish store to fillet one halibut, because halibut range from 50 to 700 pounds.

Ingredients You'll Need

8 (6 ounce) halibut fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
Cooking Spray
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
3 Teaspoons rice vinegar
3 Teaspoons hoisin sauce
2 Teaspoons Patis (fish sauce)*
1 Teaspoon chili paste with garlic, such as sambal oelek or sambal oelek trasi*
1/2 Teaspoon cornstarch


Sprinkle halibut fillets evenly with salt.

Coat a large non-skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium high heat.

Add fish to the pan; sauté for 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.

Combine lemon juice and the next 7 ingredients (through cornstarch) in a medium size sauce pan over medium-high heat, stirring constantly; bring to a boil.

In a small bowl add cornstarch and 1 1/2 teaspoon cold water to make a paste.

Add cornstarch mixture to pan and stir constantly for about 20 seconds.

Remove from heat.

Place halibut fillets on a platter and brush about 1 tablespoon sauce over each fillet.

Serve with basmati rice and steamed vegetables.
