Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

  • 1 1/2 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted

Halibut w/Oranges & Pasta

  • 1-pound angel hair pasta
  • 3 navel oranges
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, thinly sliced
  • 4 6-ounce pieces halibut, skin removed
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/2-teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 bunch scallions (white and light green parts), thinly sliced 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.

Cut the oranges into segments, removing the surrounding membranes. Squeeze the membranes over a bowl to catch their juices.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes.

Sprinkle the halibut with ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and the cumin. Cook for 4 minutes.

Turn the halibut, add the oranges with any liquid and scallions, and cook until the fish is the same color throughout and flakes easily, 4 to 5 minutes.

Divide the pasta and fish among plates. Spoon the oranges and sauce over the top. Sprinkle with the cilantro.
