  • 2 tbsp Tamari Soybean Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sodium and Sugar Free Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1 tsp Sambal Oelek Ground Fresh Chili Paste
  • 1 tsp Garlic
  • 4 tablespoon Peanut Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 1/8 cup Cilantro (Coriander)
  • 24 oz Atlantic and Pacific Halibut
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 dash Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice Blend
  • 2 tsp Ginger
  • 8 oz Cabbage
  • 1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Red Sweet Pepper
  • 2 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 1/3 oz Dried Whole Sesame Seeds


  1. For dressing: In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar substitute, chile paste and minced garlic.
  2. Slowly whisk in 2 tablespoons peanut and 1 tablespoon sesame oils until dressing thickens slightly. Stir in cilantro and set aside.
  3. For fish: Sprinkle fish with salt, pepper and five-spice powder. Heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook fish until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  5. For vegetables: Heat remaining peanut oil in skillet and sauté minced ginger until aroma is released, about 1 minute. Add shredded cabbage and thinly sliced red pepper, cover and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat, add dressing and toss to coat vegetables. Divide warm salad onto four plates. Top each plate with one fish fillet and garnish with a sprinkling of green onions and toasted sesame seeds (optional).
