From the Test Kitchen

In this flavorful, summery dish, we’re featuring flaky catfish and crisp, warm-weather green beans, topped with a satisfying combination of citrusy ponzu and sweet chili sauce. On the side, we’re jazzing up jasmine rice by simmering it with zucchini, fragrant ginger and the sweet, rich flavors of coconut. A garnish of peppery Thai basil and crunchy peanuts rounds out the meal in delicious fashion.

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Snap off and discard the stem ends of the green beans. Medium dice the squash. Peel and finely chop the ginger. Quarter the limes. Pick the basil leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the coconut milk powder and ½ cup of water; whisk until smooth.

In the same pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened and fragrant. Stir in the rice, coconut milk powder mixture, a big pinch of salt and 1½ cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer 12 to 14 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork.
