Prep / Total Time: 25 Minutes

- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
- 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup water

1. Brush halibut with lemon juice then sprinkle with minced ginger, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
2. Place fish on an oiled grill rack (skin side down). Grill, covered, on medium (or broil 6 in. from heat) until fish begins to flake easily (6-8 minutes).
* You can also cook on a stove in a pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
3. In a large skillet, boil water over medium-high and then add in Brussels sprouts, pepper flakes, and remaining salt (optional). Cook, covered, until tender (5-7 minutes).
4. While the sprouts are cooking, spray a small skillet generously with non-stick cooking spray and heat on medium. Add garlic and cook until golden brown.
5. Serve halibut with Brussels sprouts and sprinkle with garlic. Garnish with lemon slices.
