From the Test Kitchen

To top a colorful bed of noodles, bok choy, and carrots, we’re searing flaky tilapia fillets and finishing them in the pan with a silky, umami-rich glaze of sweet miso paste, mirin, and butter.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy, then roughly chop. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, half the mirin, and 2 tablespoons of water until smooth.

Cook the vegetables
2 Cook the vegetables

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan. 

Cook & glaze the fish
3 Cook & glaze the fish

Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 2 minutes. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) and butter. Cook, frequently spooning the mixture over the fish, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the fish is glazed and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking. Return to the pot.
