Fisherman’s Halibut Stir-fry

4 cups water
1/3 cup sugar
¼ cup salt
2 6-ounce halibut filets, boneless and skinless
2 ounces pineapple juice
2 ounces soy sauce
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice
½ teaspoon fresh ginger
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
½ cup broccoli tops, sliced
½ cup bean sprouts
¼ cup carrots, cut into matchstick sized pieces
¼ cup water chestnuts, sliced
¼ cup red pepper, sliced

Bring the water, sugar, and salt to a boil. Add the halibut and cook for 6-7 minutes. Remove the halibut from water and set aside.

Mix together the pineapple juice with the soy sauce, frozen orange juice, ginger, and brown sugar. Cook over medium high heat for 2 minutes, or until the volume is reduced by 30%. Set aside.

Place the sesame and vegetable oils into a heavy sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the vegetables and cook for 2 minutes. Add the juice mixture and the halibut (which will have broken apart into chunks during the cooking process) and cook one more minute.

Serve over rice.
