Marinating the halibut helps bring out the flavour in this low-fat fish dish. And steaming eliminates the fishy odour that often lingers when baking or broiling.


Minced garlic

2 tsp(s)

Ground ginger

1 tsp(s), or 1 oz fresh ginger

Uncooked scallions

2 medium, minced

Soy sauce

1 tbsp(s)

Sherry (dry or sweet)

1 tbsp(s), or nonalcoholic cooking wine

Uncooked halibut fillet

1½ pound(s)


  1. Combine garlic, ginger, scallions, soy sauce and sherry in a small bowl. Pour mixture over halibut and marinate in refrigerator up to 2 hours.
  2. Fill a saucepan with water so that it covers about one inch of entire pan, and bring water to a boil. Place halibut in a steamer basket and discard marinade. Set steamer basket in saucepan, making sure basket sits above water.
  3. Cover saucepan and steam until halibut is completely cooked or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork, about 10 minutes. Divide into 4 pieces and serve.
