Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Thaw fish if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. Finely shred 1 teaspoon peel from one of the limes; squeeze juice from lime. Squeeze juice from two of the oranges. In a small bowl combine lime juice and orange juice. Remove 1/4 cup of the juices to use in dressing.

  • Pour the remaining juices into a large nonstick skillet; add shredded lime peel and 1/2 cup water. Bring to boiling. Add fish; reduce heat to medium. Simmer, covered, for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

  • Meanwhile, for dressing, in a small bowl whisk together the reserved 1/4 cup juices, the oil, and sugar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Thinly slice the remaining two limes and the remaining three oranges. Stack the citrus slices on dinner plates. Divide fish and arugula among citrus stacks. Whisk dressing; drizzle over salads. If desired, garnish with additional orange pieces.
