In bowl of boiling water, soak noodles until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and chill in cold water; drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, in separate bowl, combine stock, orange juice, sugar, vinegar, tomato paste, cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; set aside.

In large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tsp (10 mL) of the oil over medium-high heat; fry halibut, turning once, until golden and fish flakes easily when tested, about 6 minutes. Add stock mixture and bring to boil; boil until thickened, about 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in separate skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry red pepper, mushrooms and zucchini until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Add noodles; stir-fry until hot, about 1 minute. Serve in bowls topped with fish and sauce.
