Halibut Filets Braised with Ginger, Garlic and Wine
Serving Size / Yield
- Vegetable cooking spray
- 4 halibut filets (1 1/4 lb. total), cut 1-inch thick
- 1 small onion, minced
- 2 scallions, white and 1-inch green, chopped
- 3 large garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbs. minced fresh ginger
- 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
- 1/4 C. dry white wine
- 1/8 tsp. sugar substitute
- 2 C. raw instant brown rice
- 1/2 C. 98% fat free, no-salt-added canned chicken broth or fish stock
Lightly coat a nonstick covered skillet with cooking spray and heat until very hot, but not smoking. Add the filets and brown them, skin side down, for 2 minutes. Add the onion, scallions, garlic, ginger and pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute. Reduce the heat, turn filets, and add the wine, sugar substitute and broth. Cover the pan and simmer fish for about 10 minutes until cooked through. Use a thin small knife inserted into the fish to check that it is done.
While the fish is simmering, prepare instant brown rice for 4 according to package directions. When fish is cooked through, serve over brown rice. Spoon pan vegetables and some of the sauce over the filets.
