Steamed Wild Halibut


Inspired by Good Fish by Becky Selengut

Serves 2

2 portions of Vital Choice halibut (6 oz or 4 oz), thawed and pat dry
2 carrots, peeled into wide, long strips
4 cups spinach
Organic extra virgin olive oil or macadamia nut oil, for wiping on steamer insert

Steaming liquid
1 cup water
1 cup sake
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon seasoned rice vinegar
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

Vital Choice ikura (salmon roe/caviar), for garnish
Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

  • Lightly oil a steamer insert. Put all the ingredients for the steaming liquid in the bottom of a steamer pot.
  • Lay the spinach down on the insert, topped with the carrots. Lay the halibut on top of the carrots.
  • Bring the steaming liquid to a boil. Put the fish and vegetables over the boiling liquid. Put the lid on and steam on high heat for 5 minutes, or until the halibut just starts to flake when pressed firmly with your finger.
  • Remove the insert and keep the fish and vegetables warm. Reduce the steaming liquid by half.
  • Plate the vegetables and fish and spoon the reduced sauce on the fish. Garnish with ikura and sesame seeds.
