Fresh halibut fillets, marinated and then glazed with a sweet and salty melon flavored sauce. Other firm white fish can also be used. Halibut is low in fat and calories but is an excellent source of good quality protein. It is considered a lean fish and does contain some heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. A 6 oz. halibut fillet is also chock-full of vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, zinc, thiamin, riboflavin, folate and vitamin A.

- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

- 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 8 halibut filets

- Season halibut with salt and pepper and then place halibut in a large zip lock plastic bag and pour 1/2 of the marinade over halibut.
