Recipe: Halibut Fish with Peppers

1 lb. halibut (cut into 4 - 1/2" thick ) fillets

1 and 1/4 cups of low sodium or no sodium chicken broth

One medium-size red bell pepper, cut into strips

One medium-size yellow bell pepper, cut into strips

1/4 cup sliced green onions

1/2 cup diced yellow onions

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Two teaspoons grated lemon peel

One tablespoon lemon juice

Two teaspoons cornstarch

2 cups cooked couscous

Use a 10" non-stick skillet. Combine the onion, 1 cup of chicken broth, grated lemon peel, and black pepper. Cook over medium-high heat, and bring food to a boil.

Next, add the pieces of halibut - carefully.
Then, place red and yellow strips of peppers on top of the halibut. Cook over medium-low heat, bring food to a simmer again.

Cover the skillet, and let food continue to simmer for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily - when using a fork.

You can use a slotted ladle to bring the fish and peppers to a plate. This way, you can leave the liquid juices in the skillet.

Then, measure the liquid, and add enough chicken broth - to make 3/4 cup.

Then, cover the halibut and peppers with foil wrap, to keep them warm.

In a small bowl, stir together the remaining broth, cornstarch, and lemon juice.

Stir the liquid in the skillet. Cook and stir over medium high heat, until mix comes to a boil, and is slightly thickened.

Then, it is ready for you to stir in green onion.

Next, spoon in the couscous onto 4 serving plates. Arrange the halibut, with the peppers on top. Pour lemon mixture over everything.

This meal makes 4 delicious servings, which is 1 piece of halibut fish, 1/4 cup sauce, and 1/2 cup peppers per serving.
