Edamame Delight: Start by steaming or cooking the edamame according to the package instructions. Once they're cooked to perfection, give them a good smashing with a potato smasher and season with 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Keep them warm while you prepare the rest of the dish.

Aromatics and Asian Sauce: In a small pan, sauté the minced garlic and freshly grated ginger in ½ tablespoon of oil for about one minute until they become fragrant. Remove the pan from heat and stir in 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, chopped green onions, sesame oil, basil, and cilantro. This aromatic sauce will be the star of your dish.

Halibut Hearty: Heat up a nonstick pan with 1 tablespoon of oil. Cook the halibut for about 5 minutes per side until it's cooked through. You'll know it's ready when it flakes easily.

Plate and Enjoy: Assemble your masterpiece by placing the smashed edamame at the base. Top it with the perfectly cooked halibut, and drizzle the irresistible Asian sauce over it.
