From the Test Kitchen

In this Japanese-style dish, flaky fish fillets get bold flavor and a hint of crunchy texture from a coating of togarashi—a staple of the cuisine that highlights poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more. Another hint of bright citrus shines through thanks to the ponzu sauce we’re mixing with mayo to drizzle atop the fish and vegetables.

  • 2 Tbsps Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsps Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp Togarashi Seasoning (Sweet Paprika, Hot Paprika, Dried Orange Peel, Poppy Seeds, White Sesame Seeds & Black Sesame Seeds)
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Medium dice the cucumbers. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. In a large bowl, combine the diced cucumbers and diced peppers. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and ponzu sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. 

Cook & finish the rice:
2 Cook & finish the rice:

In a medium pot, combine the rice, chopped garlic, a big pinch of salt, and 2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the mirin. Cover to keep warm. 

Marinate the vegetables:
3 Marinate the vegetables:

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the sugar and vinegar until the sugar has dissolved. Add to the bowl of diced cucumbers and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

4 Cook the fish & serve your dish:

Meanwhile, pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the togarashi. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the seasoned fish (if you received salmon, start skin-side up). Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.** Turn off the heat. Serve the finished rice topped with the cooked fish, marinated vegetables (including any liquid), and ponzu mayo. Garnish with the remaining togarashi. Enjoy!
