1 1/2 lb  raw halibut fillets
0 1/2 lb  soba noodles
8 cup  low sodium vegetable broth
1 cup  orange juice
0 1/2 cup  low sodium soy sauce
0 1/4 cup  fresh lemon juice
0 1/4 cup  cooking sherry
0 1/2 cup  fresh ginger root
4 oz  fresh carrots
0 1/2 each  medium red bell peppers
2 cup  chopped bok choy
2 each  scallions
2 tbsp  sesame oil
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil.
  2. Rinse the fish, pat dry, and refrigerate until ready to poach.
  3. Stir the noodles into the boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain, and set aside, covered.
  4. In a large saucepan, combine the vegetable stock, orange juice, soy sauce, lemon juice, and sherry.
  5. Bring to a boil and add the ginger, carrots, and bell pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 or 3 minutes, until the carrots are almost tender, then add the bok choy.
  6. When the bok choy is wilted, about 2 minutes, remove the vegetables from the broth with a slotted spoon and set them aside.
  7. Return the broth to a boil and carefully ease the fish into the broth. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, just until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  8. Meanwhile, in individual bowls, make a bed of noodles and top the noodles with some of the vegetables.
  9. When the fish is ready, ladle on a fillet and some broth. Top each serving with scallions and a few drops of sesame oil.
