  2. Mashed Potatoes And Saffron Broth: In a large saucepan combine chicken stock and saffron and bring to a boil. Add in salt to taste, add in potatoes and cook, covered, till fork-tender, about 15 to 20 min. Strain liquid into another large saucepan and reserve. Add in butter to potatoes and stir and mash till completely melted. Add in lowfat milk, stir well, and add in salt and pepper to taste. Keep hot while making the halibut.
  3. In a saucepan saute/fry shallots and garlic in extra virgin olive oil till wilted, about 3 min. Add in reserved saffron stock and simmer for 10 min. Add in green onions and simmer 5 min. Keep hot till ready to serve.
  4. Halibut: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Season halibut fillets with Creole seasoning on both sides.

Cover filets loosely with parchment paper or possibly aluminum foil and bake for 5 min, uncover and bake another 5 min, or possibly till flesh flakes easily.
