These both received "****" from me and DH!!!
I bought the halibut from Whole Foods this afternoon - $9.64 for two 6-oz fillets!!! Thank god it was so yummy because that's way over budget for us, especially when you add in the 1 lb asparagus and then $2.99 for fresh lemongrass stalks .
A little chopping (ooh that lemongrass smells sooo good as you chop it, and on your hands afterwards...), throw everything in a non-stick skillet, a little simmering, add your final ingredients and voila! this was incredibly easy and produced a succulent, impressive looking dish with a beautiful, very fresh sauce. It was sweet and slightly tangy - like a mild sweet'n'sour sauce - and went perfectly with the asparagus.(And only 5 points! Ya-hoo!)
A definite repeater - for guests even!! Next time I'll make it with Stir-fried Sweet and Sour Vegetables (recipe here.)
The asparagus ("Asparagus Salad with Mustard-Soy Dressing)") was also really delicious and couldn't have been any easier. The ends of the asparagus stalks were a little woody so they must not be in season yet.... Also it was weird eating a raw egg yolk. I couldn't find any "pasteurized" eggs so I just used a regular one but then I felt a little leery about it, and stirring the sauce with the asparagus you could see a little of the egg yolk texture which kinda grossed me out ( !!) but I'm funny about that kind of thing anyway!!! LOL Anyway I made myself get over it and sure enough it tasted great and was perfect with the rest of the meal.
