Adapted from www.foodnetwork.com, 2006. Stephanie Vella, RD Registered Dietitian, Sola Life & Fitness, 2012. *Can substitute pre chopped frozen red or white onions. For quicker cooking rice, try brown parboiled rice. Can substitute wild caught hake, haddock, cod or perch if halibut is unavailable.



  1. In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth, coconut milk and curry powder, simmer about 5 minutes.
  4. Rinse fish under cold water, pat dry with paper towels. Arrange the fish in the pan and gently shake the pan so the fish is coated with the sauce. Cover and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 7 minutes.
  5. Steam or microwave 5 cups of washed baby spinach for 2 minutes
  6. Arrange a pile of steamed spinach in the bottom of 4 soup bowls. Top with the fish fillets. Stir the cilantro, scallions, and lime juice into the sauce and season, to taste, with pepper. Ladle the sauce over the fish and serve with rice.
