2 tsp. peeled, grated fresh ginger
2 tsp. finely minced garlic
3/4 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. halibut or other firm, white fish, cut into 4 portion
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 cup sliced leeks (white part only) or onion
3 1/2 cups low-sodium, nonfat chicken broth
1/4 cup minced fresh mint
1/4 cup sliced scallions (2 scallions)
1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest


  1. Combine the ginger, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Gently rub the mixture into each piece of halibut; set aside.
  2. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the leeks or onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the halibut and enough broth to cover the halibut. Bring to lightly boiling, cover, and simmer on low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until cooked through. Place the halibut in individual shallow bowls.
  3. Add the mint and scallions to the broth and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Ladle the broth over each piece of halibut and sprinkle with lemon zest.
