Poached Halibut with Ginger and Cilantro

Serves 4

Poaching is a tasty, healthy way of cooking seafood since it doesn't require any oil and preserves all of the flavorful juices that are released during cooking.

  • 1 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
  • 4 green onions, halved
  • dash of tamari
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 (5- to 6-ounce) halibut steaks
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 cilantro sprigs
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • Sliced avocados (optional)
  • 4 cups cooked jasmine rice

Put wine, ginger, green onions, tamari and lime juice into a large, deep skillet and simmer over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Season halibut with salt and pepper then arrange in skillet. Scatter cilantro over the top, cover tightly and gently simmer until halibut is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Toss limes slices and avocados over halibut and serve with rice on the side. Spoon poaching liquid over the fish if you like.
