    Skillet halibut Heart Smart Gluten Free Low Sodium

    Halibut is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect against heart problems and increase “good” (HDL) cholesterol.


    1 pound boneless, skinless halibut fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
    6 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon minced ginger
    1/2 cup diced onion
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce
    1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
    2 cups sliced carrots (about 2 medium)
    2 cups chopped bok choy
    1/4 cup chopped chives
    1 teaspoon corn starch
    2 tablespoons water


    1. In a large bowl, combine halibut, garlic, ginger, onion, oil and chili sauce. Gently mix together with clean hands. (You can also wear a pair of disposable kitchen gloves.) Cover and place in the refrigerator.
    2. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add broth and carrots. Cover and allow to steam for 5 to 8 minutes. Add halibut and spice mixture (made in step 1), and stir. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 more minutes, stirring occasionally, until halibut appears clear. Add bok choy and chives. Stir, cover and cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, until a small amount of liquid remains.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and water. Add 1 to 2 teaspoons to the skillet and stir until slightly thickened. Repeat until corn starch mixture is gone.
    4. Enjoy warm.
