Pacific Halibut in Green Tea Broth Preparation
1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Season halibut with salt and pepper.
2.In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups salted water to a boil. Add quinoa, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.
3.Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook fillets until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove ???llets from pan (reserve pan with any oil in it). Place fish in an ovenproof dish and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until just cooked through (a paring knife will easily go through fish).
4.To pan, add ginger, bok choy, edamame, shiitakes, and snow peas; reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes or until the shiitakes begin to soften. Add green tea, soy sauce, and honey. Cook until edamame are tender, about 3 minutes longer. Add scallions to pan. Place some broth and vegetables in each of four shallow bowls. Top with fish fillet and garnish with basil leaves.
5.Season quinoa with salt if necessary and serve on the side in separate serving bowls.
