Oye Vay SoyVay!

A friend of mine recently turned me on to Soy Vay's Wasabi Teriyaki and let me just say, OYE VAY is it addictive! I used it as a marinade for halibut filets and threw it together with some couscous, sauteed red pepper, garlic, and onion, and roasted asparagus.  This meal is soy easy and equally (soy) delicious.   

Here's the marinade to look for at the market:

And here's my go-to for easy couscous (or rice) in a jiffy:
Near East Couscous:

How to prepare this meal:
Serves 2:
Soy Vay Marinade (about 1/4 cup)
2 6-8 oz halibut filets
1 tbsp canola oil
1 bundle asparagus, rinsed and trimmed
1 box of Near East Couscous (you'll need 2 Tbsp Olive Oil and water)
And 1/2 red pepper-diced
1/2 onion-diced
1 head of garlic

1) Coat a baking sheet with Pam.  Add asparagus, sprinkle with kosher salt, spray with a little extra pam and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 21 minutes. When finished, increase the heat to 400 degrees.

2) Add the olive oil to a pan.  Let it simmer, add onion, let it cook for about 1-2 minutes and add garlic.  After about 20 seconds, add the red pepper and season with salt/pepper.  Allow to soften for another 5 minutes or so.  Mix periodically. Set aside.

3) Prepare couscous as directed.  It takes 5 minutes to prepare once the water is boiling.

4) Heat the canola oil in a non-stick pan.  Add the halibut and sear for 2 minutes per side.  When finished, throw it on a sheet pan and bake in the oven for 5 minutes.

Line the asparagus on the center of the plate. Top with couscous, then sauteed veggies and the halibut filets.  Enjoy!
