Preparation

  1. To prepare salsa, combine first 9 ingredients.
  2. To prepare fish, rub cut sides of garlic over fish; place fish in a small zip-top plastic bag. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Remove fish from marinade, discarding marinade. Sprinkle fish with salt, cumin, and black pepper; place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  5. To prepare rice, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté until tender. Add rice; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add broth and tomato paste, stirring to dissolve tomato paste; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
