Halibut in an Asian Style Broth

Keeping with my resolution to try and cook fish more often, I prepared Halibut for dinner last night. Tried something a little different. Found a few recipes where the fish was poached in a seasoned broth. Many of the recipes called for honey, something that I wouldn’t like. I am not a fan of anything sweet with meat or fish so I went with something a little more savory/spicy. The Chili Garlic sauce was really hot giving the dish real heat. TIP: If unlike me, you would like a sweet broth, use Thai Sweet Chili sauce instead of the Chili Garlic.
