tips & techniques
Cook the rice
1 Cook the rice

In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

2 Prepare the ingredients

Meanwhile, wash and dry the bok choy; cut off and discard the root ends, then thinly slice. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Roughly chop the peanuts.

Cook the bok choy
3 Cook the bok choy

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced bok choy and chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and the bok choy leaves are wilted. Transfer to a large bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan. 

Coat & cook the fish
4 Coat & cook the fish

Place the flour and curry powder on a large plate; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Pat the fish dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Working one piece at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned fish in the seasoned flour. In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of flour sizzles immediately when added, add the coated fish (tapping off any excess flour before adding). Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
