I really didn't think this would come out as good as it did. The megadoses of garlic and ginger make it very flavorful. I put in 2 T sherry when I was saute-ing the onions, and that gave some wonderful flavor too. I used peanut oil to prevent sticking. Veggies release water when cooked, so I had to drain the pan. I cooked the fish (i used a thick slab of salmon) separately on a stove-top grill, putting a cover on it because the outside was done before the inside. I then added the veggies and heated through. Makes a hearty dinner for two.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, ginger, garlic and chili pepper with 1 teaspoon sesame oil.
  2. Place the 'ahi in a bowl and mix with half the soy mixture.
  3. Cover and let stand for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over high heat and coat the pan with 1 teaspoon sesame oil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Stir-fry the onion and bell pepper, about 4 minutes.
  6. Add the bok choy and snow peas, toss for another 2 minutes.
  7. Stir in the rest of the soy mixture. Cook for another minute.
  8. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan and, over high heat, stir-fry the 'ahi with its sauce for about 2 minutes.
  9. Remove immediately (you want to just sear the 'ahi on the outside) and serve with vegetables underneath and 'ahi on top.
  10. Steamed rice would be great, too, but count the calories and limit the portion size.
