Ginger Lime Halibut

This is a terrific low fat, low calorie recipe. You can substitute swordfish or any firm white fish. Serves 4

2 teaspoons grated lime rind
fresh juice from 2 limes
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 tablespoons minced green onions
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 fish steaks about 3/4 inch thick
salt and pepper

Preheat broiler. Combine line rind, lime juice, honey, ginger, green onions, soy sauce, and garlic in a small saucepan. Dip fish in sauce. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Broil 10 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork. While fish is cooking, heat sauce over medium heat until reduced by half. Serve sauce over the fish.

Preparation tip: I buy fresh ginger and peel it. I then freeze it until I need it. I grates much easier when frozen. This way I have ginger on hand.
