    From the Test Kitchen

    You’ll give flaky fish fillets a flavorful lift by basting them in the pan with a rich glaze of maple syrup, rice vinegar, and miso paste—a staple of Japanese cuisine made from fermented soybeans. It all comes together over a robust, hearty mix of barley and sautéed vegetables.

    Cook the barley
    1 Cook the barley

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, add the barley. Cook, uncovered, 28 to 30 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add half the vinegar and season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice lengthwise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. In a bowl, whisk together the miso paste, maple syrup, remaining vinegar, and 2 tablespoons of water.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat half the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Add the sliced peppers, chopped garlic, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the soy sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the liquid has cooked off. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

    4 Cook & glaze the fish

    Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat the remaining sesame oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skin side up. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, constantly spooning the glaze over the fish, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the fish is coated and cooked through.* Turn off the heat.

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