  • Lung Cancer: Should You Worry?

    The first question most of us ask when someone gets lung cancer is: How much did she smoke? Unfortunately anyone can get the disease without ever lighting up. In fact, about 13 percent of those diagnosed with lung cancer are nonsmokers, according to the American Cancer Society.

  • Pan-Seared Halibut Steaks

    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons herbes de Provence spice blend (or 1 1/2 teaspoons each dried thyme, rosemary, savory and lavender)
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 wild Pacific halibut steaks, 1/2 pound each
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1/4 to 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    1/4 teaspoon sugar
    Zest of 1/2 lemon (for garnish)

    1. Mix flour, dried herbs, salt, and pepper in a small dish. Rub over all sides of the fish.

    2. Heat oil over medium heat in large sauté pan. When pan is hot but not smoking, place the fish into the pan. Cook four minutes, flip and cook another three to four minutes on the other side, until the fish flakes open.

    3. Remove fish from pan and quickly add garlic, cooking 30 seconds. Add lemon juice and sugar, whisking to bring up the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer one to two minutes to reduce the sauce. Drizzle over fish and garnish with lemon zest.
