    From the Test Kitchen

    To elevate simply seared tilapia, we’re topping it with a tart and sweet glaze that combines miso paste, honey, and tamarind paste—made from the pleasantly sour, sticky fruit of the tropical tamarind tree. It's the perfect match for sides of garlic rice and a colorful vegetable sauté.

    • 6 oz Carrots
    • 2 cloves Garlic

    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Peel the carrots and thinly slice on an angle. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, honey (kneading the packet before opening), tamarind paste, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    2 Make the garlic rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, combine the rice, chopped garlic, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    3 Cook the vegetables

    Meanwhile, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and chopped bok choy stems in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped bok choy leaves; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm.

    5 Cook the salmon & serve your dish

    Pat the salmon dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned salmon, skin side up. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 minutes. Add the butter and glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, constantly spooning the glaze over the salmon, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the salmon is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the garlic rice topped with the cooked vegetables and cooked salmon (including any glaze from the pan). Garnish with the chopped peanuts and sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
