Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spice Blend (Emeril's Original Essence): Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and blend well. Store in an airtight container in your spice cabinet for up to 3 months.
  2. Slice the zucchini lengthwise into very thin strips, like pasta. Discard the center seedy pieces and separate the slices.
  3. Season the halibut lightly on both sides with Emeril's Essence.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the halibut and cook until just cooked through, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from the heat.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the extra virgin olive oil over high heat. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and lemon zest, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the zucchini and green onions and cook, tossing, until the zucchini is just barley wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the white wine and bring to a boil. Add the stock and bring to a simmer while tossing. Add the tomatoes and remove from heat. Add the herbs and pine nuts and toss again. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Divide the zucchini 'pasta' among 4 shallow pasta bowls or large plates. Arrange the fish on top and sprinkle each portion with 2 tablespoons of the cheese.
  7. Serve immediately.

Good flavor although making the spice blend and the zucchini strips were a bit time consuming. I used white wine instead of the shrimp stock and omitted the cheese. Very healthy "pasta" dinner.
