Orange & Lime Halibut
2 pieces Halibut (or your choice of fish)
2 naval oranges (sectioned and juice reserved)
1 tsp grated orange zest
3 Tbs orange juice
1 tsp grated lime zest
2 Tbs lime juice
1 Tbs soy sauce
(salt and pepper to taste)
1. Spray the rack of a broiler pan with nonstick spray and preheat the broiler.
2. Combine the orange zest and juice, lime zest and juice, soy sauce, salt and pepper in baking dish large enough to hold the fish in a single layer. Add the fish and marinate for 5 minutes turning once. Remove the fish from the marinade and discard marinade.
3. Place the fish on the broiler rack and broil 4 inches from heat. 4 minutes on each side.
4. Cut each steak in half and place a portion on each of the plates. Top each piece of fish with one-forth of the orange sections and drizzle evenly with the reserved orange juice.
This was my Tuesday night across the miles dinner with Lou. She picked the recipe this time.
It turned out much more flavorful than I expected because I was surprised it said to only marinade it for 5 minutes. The fish really did soak up the marinade quite well. I used Mahi Mahi instead of halibut since that's what I already had here. 2 thumbs up Lou!
It was quick and easy, especially compared to the one we did last week. This one I felt like I was only in the kitchen for a few minutes and it was done.
For my side dishes, I sauted spinach in olive oil, onions and cayenne peppers.
For the other side, I put slices of corn on the cob, onions, jalopenos, and tomatoes (all garden fresh) and put them in aluminum foil with garlic and herbs de province and Italian dressing drizzled over them. Yum
Peaches, blueberries and vanilla yogurt.
A friend invited me over to her house for dinner and she served this afterwards. It was so delish I had to make me one, too! Thank you Madeline.
