Poached Halibut with Cauliflower and Fennel


Fresh fish with fresh local vegetables!

1 1/2 lbs halibut, cut into 8 pieces
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon + 1 cup chicken or vegetable broth
1 medium sized onion, cut in half and sliced medium thick
1 large carrot, turned into 1/2 inch pieces
1 1/2 cups cauliflower florets, cut into quarters
1 medium sized fennel bulb, sliced medium thick
5 medium cloves garlic, pressed
Salt and black pepper to taste
Brown rice, cooked
Chopped fennel green tops for garnish

Slice onion and chop garlic and let sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out their hidden health-promoting properties. Rub halibut with lemon juice and season with a little salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon broth in a skillet. Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the rest of the broth and carrots. Simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes, covered. Add cauliflower, fennel, and garlic. Place halibut steaks on top and continue to cook, covered, for about 6 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve halibut with vegetables and broth on brown rice. Sprinkle with chopped fennel greens.
