Simple, steamed fish is a quick, easy and healthy dinner option. Add cooked brown rice for a complete dinner. Put the rice on first, because it takes longer to cook than the fish.

  • 1 1/4 lb firm white-fleshed fish fillets (such as pickerel, cod or halibut)
  • 2 tablespoons slivered fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil

Sesame Broccoli:
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic thinly sliced

In 10-inch (25 cm) pie plate, arrange fish flesh side up; sprinkle with ginger, soy sauce, lemon juice and sesame oil. Arrange white parts of green onions on top.

Pour enough water into wok to come 1 inch (2.5 cm) below rack. Place plate on rack; cover and steam over high heat until fish flakes easily when tested, 10 to 12 minutes.

Sesame Broccoli: Meanwhile, in wok or large skillet, heat vegetable and sesame oils over medium-high heat; stir-fry garlic for 30 seconds. Add broccoli; stir-fry for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup water; cover and steam until tender, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with fish.
