From the Test Kitchen

Togarashi (a favorite Japanese seasoning that highlights dried orange peel) makes for a zesty coating on flaky tilapia in this dish. It’s served over a colorful medley of sautéed vegetables, then topped with juicy orange and crisp radishes marinated in ponzu sauce—for layers of refreshing texture and flavor in every bite.

tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. Peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel the carrots; grate on the large side of a box grater. Quarter the radishes lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and medium dice the orange. In a bowl, combine the sliced radishes, diced orange, and ponzu sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. 

Cook the vegetables
2 Cook the vegetables

Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped bok choy stems and sliced shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped bok choy leaves and grated carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the bok choy leaves are wilted. Transfer to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan. 

Cook the fish
3 Cook the fish

Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season on both sides with salt, pepper and enough of the togarashi to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. 

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