Halibut with Oranges and Angel Hair Pasta

Dinner will be ready in under 30 minutes if this is on the menu!  Recipe serves 4.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound angel hair pasta
  • 3 navel oranges
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, sliced thinly
  • 4 6-ounce pieces halibut, skin removed
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

What you’ll do:

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.
  • Cut the oranges into segments, removing the surrounding membranes.  Squeeze the membranes (white part) over a bowl to catch the juices.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Add the ginger, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the halibut with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and the cumin.  Cook for 4 minutes in the skillet with the ginger.
  • Turn the halibut, add the orange segments with any liquid and the scallions.  Cook about 4-5 minutes or the fish is the same color throughout and flakes easily.
  • Divide the pasta and the fish.  Spoon the oranges and juices over top.  Sprinkle with cilantro.
