- lb, 4 pieces Fresh halibut fillets
- 1/4 cup Orange juice
- 1 Tbsp Soy sauce, reduced sodium type
- 2 Tbsp Water
- 2 Tbsp Ketchup
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp Parsley, minced
- 1 tsp Ginger, minced
- 1 tsp Garlic, crushed and minced
- 4 sprigs Parsley (garnish)
Procedure: Preheat oven broiler or outdoor grill. Rinse halibut with cool water and pat dry with a paper towel. If necessary, cut larger fillets into 4 oz portions. Place into a shallow glass or pyrex pan in one layer. In a small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients, then pour over top of halibut. Cover pan and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes, spooning sauce over fish a couple times. If using the oven, place fish on a broiler pan that is sprayed lightly with vegetable oil and broil 2-3 inches from heat source for 10 min. per one inch thickness of fish. Turn fish once, halfway through cooking time. If using outdoor grill, spray vegetable oil onto a sheet of aluminum foil, place it on the grill rack and poke some holes in the foil. Place fish on foil and cook with grill lid closed for 10 min. per one inch thickness of fish. Plate cooked fish and garnish with parsley.

To Make Roasted Potatoes: Wash potatoes well. Using a cutting board and sharp knife, cut each potato in half and then cut each half into 4 wedges. Place in a large bowl with about 1 Tbsp olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Bake on a flat sheet pan at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time. When done, potatoes will be tender when poked with a fork.
