Steamed Orange Halibut

Steamed Orange Halibut is a great low-calorie option that is an excellent source of protein to add to your dinner menu. Steaming the fish with Florida Orange Juice is a healthier alternative to frying and adds great flavor. Halibut is also a prime source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is an essential nutrient.


  • 3 cups (720ml) Florida Orange Juice
  • ⅓ cup lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. ground ginger
  • 4 pieces (4-oz. each) boned, skinned halibut filet
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. minced fresh ginger
  • Asian chili oil (optional)
  • Thin shreds of lime peel

Steamed Orange Halibut

1. In the bottom of an 11 to 12-inch-wide steamer, combine the Florida Orange Juice, lime juice and ground ginger.

2. Cover the pot and bring the juice mixture to a boil over high heat.

3. Rinse the fish and set the pieces slightly apart on the rack over boiling juice. Cover the pan and reduce to medium heat.

4. Steam until the fish is barely opaque but still moist-looking in the center of the thickest part (cut to test), 8 to 10 minutes.

5. Lift out the rack.

6. With a wide spatula, lift the fish from the rack and set on a plate. Cover to keep warm.

7. Increase heat to high and boil the pan juices, uncovered, until reduced to about 1 ½ cups, 10 to 12 minutes.

8. In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with three tablespoons of water.

9. Add the mixture, along with the fresh ginger, to the reduced pan juices. Stir until boiling.

10. Place the fish on the serving platter and pour the sauce over-top the fish. Garnish each portion with a few drops of chili oil and shreds of lime peel.
