    From the Test Kitchen

    This adaptation of the Japanese favorite—whose name includes the word teri, a nod to its savory-sweet glaze—features flaky tilapia 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 & make the glaze

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. 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, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and 1 tablespoon of water

    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 and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; 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.

    Pat the tilapia dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned tilapia. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, constantly spooning the glaze over the tilapia, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the tilapia is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked tilapia (including any glaze from the pan). Serve with the cooked green beans. Garnish with the marinated radishes (discarding any liquid) and the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
