“You can substitute other white fleshed fish for the halibut and if you don't have a steamer, you can wrap the fish in a loose foil packet and cook it in the oven for the same 9 to 11 minutes -- just be careful when you open the foil because the steam will rush out. And, depending on your palate, you can increase or decrease the garlic and the heat.”
