Rich umami flavor and hearty, chewy udon noodles are hallmarks of Japanese comfort food. To dress our udon noodles, we’re sautéing cabbage, shiitake mushrooms and aromatics in sesame oil, forming the base for a simple soy broth. On top, we’re serving fillets of cod, lightly dredged in rice flour and pan-seared. A sprinkling of spices (our take on a classic blend known as togarashi) completes the dish with pleasant heat and vivid color.

2 Cook the mushrooms & aromatics:

In a medium pot, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 5 minutes, or until browned and slightly crispy. Add the ginger, white bottoms of the scallions and sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the aromatics are softened and fragrant.

Add the noodles, soy sauce and 1½ cups of water to the pot of vegetables; heat to boiling on high.

While the broth simmers, place the rice flour on a plate. Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides.
