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

In a small pot, combine the rice, 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. Fluff the cooked rice with a fork.

Prepare the ingredients:
2 Prepare the ingredients:

While the rice cooks, wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Peel the carrots and thinly slice into rounds. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice. Halve the orange; squeeze the juice into a bowl, straining out any seeds. Crack the eggs into a bowl; season with salt and pepper and beat until smooth.

Cook the vegetables & eggs:
3 Cook the vegetables & eggs:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms and carrots; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the chopped garlic and ginger and sliced white bottoms of the scallions; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the sliced bok choy; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until softened. Using a spoon, move the vegetables to one side of the pan. Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to the other side, then add the beaten eggs. Cook, constantly stirring the eggs, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until cooked through. Stir the vegetables and eggs to thoroughly combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Wipe out the pan.

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Transfer to a cutting board, skin side down. Cut each fillet into 2 equal-sized pieces; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish, skinless side down. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 4 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.

Serve the cooked fish with the finished rice. Top the fish with the sauce. Garnish with the sliced green tops of the scallions. Enjoy!
