  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon ginger root, grated
  • 3 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound halibut fillet


  1. Put tamari, 2 tablespoons of oil, gingerroot, lime juice, sugar, and garlic in a small mixing bowl; whisk together.
  2. Place fish in a shallow pan and pour marinade over the top. Allow to marinate ½ – 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
