The spicy carrot juice mixture used to baste the fish steaks would also go well with any type of broiled poultry or pork tenderloin.


1/4 cup carrot juice

4 teaspoons apricot all-fruit spread

2 teaspoons vegetable oil, such as olive or canola oil

1 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/3 cup chopped cilantro

2 halibut steaks (10 ounces each), halved crosswise


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the carrot juice, fruit spread, oil, paprika, salt, cumin, coriander, and pepper. Stir in the cilantro.

2. Preheat the broiler. Place the halibut steaks on a broiler pan and brush with the carrot juice mixture. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes, or until the top is browned and the flesh just flakes when tested with a fork. Makes 4 servings

Moroccan-Style Chicken Substitute 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (5 ounces each) for the halibut. In step 2, broil for 7 to 8 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
