Instructions
  1. Fill a 12- inch skillet with water to a depth of 1-inch and bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, lay lime leaves, 2 per seafood portion, onto a metal or bamboo steamer basket. Slice orange in half crosswise. Squeeze juice from one orange half to make 1/4 cup juice; cut remaining half into thin slices. Layer orange slices on top of lime leaves. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water; place fillets on top of orange slices in steamer and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Turn off heat. Place steamer basket into skillet; return liquid to a boil. Cover loosely and cook 5 to 7 minutes for frozen halibut or 4 to 5 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
  4. While halibut is cooking, blend orange juice, ponzu sauce, chopped chives, and red pepper in a small bowl. Serve sauce with cooked fillets.
