Fresh tuna, swordfish or halibut would work.

I agree with Tuna and Swordfish. Just remember the fish will cook really fast depending on how thick you slice it. Of course shrimp and scallops would also work well for a stir fry.

Swordfish would be excellent. If you live in a part of the country where you can buy shark, that could also be a good choice. Shark has a mild flavor and a texture a lot like very tender beef, so it would hold its shape well in that type of dish.

Scallops or shrimp. The fish must have a firm flesh to saute and remain in one piece.

You don't have to cook them together at the same time - cook the fish and stir fry the veggies in two separate stages, then just toss together quicky before serving. Constant stirring will break up pretty much any fish.

BTW Mahi mahi is very firm, so is monkfish.

My favorite is Mahi Mahi and Orange Roughy. VERY nice, firm fish with a delicate flavor. YUM! However, I eat fish a lot and can't afford Mahi Mahi or Orange Roughy all of the time so I also buy Tilapia.

BUT we don't get haddock down here. If you can buy haddock where you are, that's a lovely fish.

Skate would work, if you could get it. It's a lot like scallops.
