  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian chili paste
  • 4 halibut or mahi mahi fillets (about 6 oz each)
  • 1/2 pound baby bok choy, trimmed and separated into pieces
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces whole wheat or whole-grain angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti
  • 1/2 red sweet pepper, cored, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Make It

1. In a small bowl, combine broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, lime juice, ginger, rice vinegar and chili paste. Reserve 3 tbsp of the sauce for noodles.

2. Heat a gas or stovetop grill to medium-high or the coals in a charcoal grill to medium-hot. Lightly oil grill grates. Drizzle sauce on both sides of fish and brush to coat. Grill for 4 minutes on flesh side. Turn and drizzle and brush generously again with sauce; grill for an additional 4 minutes on skin side or until fish flakes easily. Drizzle any remaining sauce over top. Gently remove from grill with a large spatula.

3. While fish is grilling, lightly spritz bok choy with nonstick cooking spray and season with salt. Grill for 3 minutes per side or until lightly charred and tender.

4. Meanwhile, cook pasta following package directions, about 7 minutes. Drain; stir in red pepper, half the scallions and the reserved 3 tbsp sauce.

5. Serve fish immediately with noodles and bok choy. Squeeze lime wedges over each portion and sprinkle remaining scallions on top.


No hoisin sauce?
  • Ketchup is a great stand-in. Any mild white vinegar can replace the rice vinegar.
mix it up
  • In place of bok choy, sub in asparagus, halved baby zucchini or sweet onion slices. The glaze also works well with tuna, sea bass, swordfish or large shrimp.
