Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Chill 20 mins Roast 450°F 12 mins to 13 mins


  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Asian chile paste
  • 1 teaspoon dark Asian sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 pounds halibut or sea bass fillets (about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 inches thick)
  • 3 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges, for garnish

Make It

1. Whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, chile paste, sesame oil, rice-wine vinegar, lime juice and ginger in small bowl.

2. Coat glass baking dish just large enough to hold the fish fillets in a single layer, with nonstick cooking spray. Place the fish fillets in the baking dish. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the hoisin mixture; spoon remaining hoisin mixture over the top of fish. Cover; place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

3. Heat oven to 450 degrees F.

4. Roast the fish, uncovered, in the 450 degrees F oven for 7 minutes. Carefully remove the baking dish from the oven; spoon the reserved hoisin mixture evenly over the fish; sprinkle with the scallions. Return to the oven and roast for another 5 to 6 minutes or until the fish just begins to flake easily when prodded with a fork. Garnish with the lime wedges.
