From the Test Kitchen

This quick, easy recipe makes the most of late-season cucumber—simply by slicing it up and marinating it with vinegar, sesame oil and Japanese spices (including dried orange peel and poppy seeds). Our cucumber and radishes provide a refreshing topping for flaky cod and hearty, tender udon noodles, which get plenty of umami flavor from dried shiitake mushrooms. (The water used to rehydrate the mushrooms doubles as a base for the delicious broth.)

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. In a bowl, combine the mushrooms and 1 cup of hot water; let stand for at least 10 minutes. Thinly slice the cucumber into rounds and place in a medium bowl. Peel and mince the ginger. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallion; thinly slice on an angle, separating the white bottom and green top. Thinly slice the celery on an angle. Cut off and discard the ends of the radishes; thinly slice into rounds.

2 Marinate the cucumber:

To the bowl of cucumber, add the vinegar, half the sesame oil, half the ginger and as much of the spice blend as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Make the broth:
3 Make the broth:

While the cucumber marinates, in a large pot, heat the remaining sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the remaining ginger and cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the celery, white bottom of the scallion and mushrooms and mushroom water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the celery is slightly softened.

4 Add the noodles:

Add the noodles (carefully separating with your hands before adding) to the pot and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until thoroughly combined and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide between 2 bowls and set aside in a warm place.

Cook the cod & plate your dish:
5 Cook the cod & plate your dish:

Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fillets and cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Divide between the bowls of broth and noodles. Garnish with the marinated cucumber (including the marinating liquid), radishes and green top of the scallion. Enjoy!
