Halibut or Salmon Sauté

This dish is wonderful served on basmati brown rice with a spinach salad. Halibut and salmon are both coldwater fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have numerous health benefits, particularly in maintaining good brain function.

1 pound halibut or salmon
 sea salt to taste, plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided
 black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 cup broccoli florets
1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger root
1/4 cup vegetable broth or broth made with vegetable broth powder or 1/4 cup chicken broth or broth made with chicken broth powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch or 2 teaspoons arrowroot
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel or 1 teaspoon lime peel
Remove and discard the skin and bones from the halibut or salmon. Cut into 1" cubes. Season fish with salt and pepper and set aside.

In a sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-high heat. Add the fish and sauté until barely cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove fish from skillet.

Sauté carrots, celery, onions and broccoli in remaining oil until al dente. Return fish to skillet. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and ginger. Combine broth, cornstarch, and lemon peel in a small bowl; add to fish mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and the fish flakes when tested with a fork.
