Today I decided to make fish because Alyssa wasn't going to be home until after dinner. I was looking through an issue of Cooking Light and landed on Coconut Curry Halibut. It sounded good, and I had all the ingredients, so I decided to give it a try.
It ended up being awesome! Matt loved it, and had thirds! He also told me that the sauce was so good that I should make it without the fish as a dipping sauce for everything. Success!

1 Tbsp. Thai red curry paste
1 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk

1 /2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
4 halibut filets
1/4 tsp. pepper

Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan over high heat, whisking until smooth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 3/4 cup (about 25 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in lime juice and cilantro; let stand 5 minutes. Strain to remove solids.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat the pan.
Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper.
Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side, or until done.
