This dish goes together in less than 20 minutes. If you can’t get halibut, any firm-fleshed white fish will do.

  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbs. thinly sliced scallions
  • 2 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. minced orange zest

    I didn't love this. Of course it is steamed fish so you lost all that flavor from not searing or roasting. Still, I think I would try a different steamed fish recipe before going back to this one.
