In this delicious, gourmet dish, you’ll make an incredible glaze for tender, flaky salmon. Orange and ginger are a powerfully flavorful combination, equal parts sweet and savory: the fresh, tart notes of citrus perfectly complement the peppery aromatic properties of ginger. We’re also adding light richness to the glaze with sweet soy sauce (a thicker, sweeter version of the original).

Cook the rice:
1 Cook the rice:

In a medium pot, heat the rice, a big pinch of salt and 4 cups of water to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover the pot and reduce the heat to low. Cook 11 to 13 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Peel the carrots and cut into matchsticks. Cut off and discard the root ends of the yu choy; thinly slice the stems and leaves. Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out the seeds. Crack the egg into a bowl; beat until smooth.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the white bottoms of the scallions and half the garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the carrots and yu choy.
