Red Pepper Jelly-Glazed Halibut
Want a sweet and sassy dish? Look no further than this pepper jelly-glazed halibut and Sautéed Bok Choy. The jelly lends a little sweet heat to the glaze, which does triple duty here, as a glaze for both the fish and bok choy, then as a dipping sauce on the side. It’s the perfect counterpoint to the mild-flavored, firm-fleshed fish.
Nutrient-dense, halibut is low in fat and high in protein. It’s also rich in B vitamins, potassium, and essential Omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower blood pressure as well as bad cholesterol. Baby bok choy is equally nutritious. It’s an excellent source of vitamins K, C, and A and delivers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.
FOR THE GLAZE, COMBINE:
FOR THE FISH, SEASON:
Preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from element. Line a baking sheet with foil; place a rack inside and lightly coat with nonstick spray.
For the glaze, combine jelly, vinegar, scallions, soy sauce, honey, avocado oil, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil in a saucepan. Heat glaze over medium and cook until syrupy and reduced to about ⅞ cup, about 10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup glaze for bok choy.
For the fish, season fillets with salt and pepper; arrange on prepared rack. Brush tops of fillets with 2 Tbsp. glaze and broil 2 minutes. Flip fillets, brush with 2 Tbsp. glaze, then broil until fillets flake easily, 2–3 minutes more.
Serve fish with remaining glaze.
