    From the Test Kitchen

    This adaptation of the Japanese favorite—whose name includes the word teri, a nod to its savory-sweet glaze—features crispy skin salmon finished with a pan sauce of mirin, honey, and coconut aminos (a common soy sauce substitute), which helps emulate the flavors the dish is known for.

    tips & techniques
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the rice and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & start the sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Roughly chop the peanuts. Halve the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise; place in a bowl. Add the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut aminos, mirin, and honey (kneading the packet before opening).

    Cook the green beans
    3 Cook the green beans

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the green beans; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the green beans are softened and the water has cooked off. Add the chopped peanuts and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until combined. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    Cook the salmon
    4 Cook the salmon

    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-high until hot. Add the seasoned salmon, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate, skin side up. 

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.

    Add the sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter) to the pan of reserved fond. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until slightly thickened and heated through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked salmon and finished sauce. Serve the cooked green beans on the side. Garnish with as much of the marinated radishes as you'd like (discarding any liquid). Enjoy!
