Halibut with Sweet-and-Sour Sauce

Yield Makes 4 servings
Although many people are surprised by the use of ketchup in a Chinese sauce, it lends just the right amount of sweet and acidic flavors to the dish.


  • Vegetable Cooking Spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apricot preserves
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Asian chili paste
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

How to Make It

  1. Coat a large 13- x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Lay fillets in dish, without crowding.

  2. Combine ketchup and next 3 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in walnuts.

  3. Spoon sauce over halibut; bake at 450° for 12 minutes or until done. Serve with white rice and steamed asparagus.
