From the Test Kitchen

Zesty flavors abound in this dish thanks to a simple sauce of soy glaze and vibrant fresh orange juice that tops our seared fish and a bed of jasmine rice infused with fragrant lemongrass.

tips & techniques
Cook the lemongrass rice:
1 Cook the lemongrass rice:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the ends of the lemongrass. Peel away the fibrous outer layers to reach the pliable white core; cut the core crosswise into four equal-sized pieces. In a medium pot, combine the rice, lemongrass pieces, 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; carefully remove and discard the lemongrass. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork.
