    From the Test Kitchen

    You’ll give flaky fish fillets a flavorful lift by basting them in the pan with a rich glaze of maple syrup and gochujang—a savory paste made from chiles and fermented soybeans. It all comes together over a robust, hearty mix of brown rice and roasted vegetables.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

    Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry and the fresh produce. Cut off and discard any stem ends from the green beans; halve crosswise. Quarter the radishes lengthwise. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. Roughly chop the figs; place in a bowl. Add the vinegar; stir to coat. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Whisk to combine.

    Cook the rice
    2 Cook the rice

    Add the rice to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 17 to 19 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Add a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

    Roast the vegetables
    3 Roast the vegetables

    Meanwhile, place the halved green beans, quartered radishes, and diced peppers on a sheet pan; drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 9 to 11 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

    Cook & glaze the shrimp
    4 Cook & glaze the shrimp

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails, if desired). Place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Stir to coat. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Add the glaze (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are coated, opaque, and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

    5 Finish the rice & serve your dish

    To the pot of cooked rice, add the roasted vegetables and dressed figs (including any liquid); stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished rice topped with the glazed shrimp (including any glaze from the pan). Garnish with the sesame seeds. Enjoy!
