Fennel-Marinated Halibut with Fennel Tzatziki

Tzatziki is a yogurt-based Greek condiment that traditionally contains cucumber. Using fennel in place of cucumber adds sweetness and a mild licorice flavor to the sauce. Fennel seeds impart a slightly nutty flavor in the marinade. Substitute snapper when you can't find fresh halibut.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons fennel seeds, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded fennel bulb
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fennel fronds
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Combine first 5 ingredients and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large zip-top plastic bag; add fish. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning occasionally.

Preheat broiler.

Spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, shredded fennel bulb, chopped fennel fronds, and garlic. Cover and refrigerate.

Remove fish from bag; discard marinade. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with yogurt sauce.
