    From the Test Kitchen

    In this Japanese-style dish, flaky tilapia fillets get deep, bold flavor from a coating of vibrant togarashi—a staple of the cuisine that highlights poppy seeds, dried orange peel, and more. For cooling contrast, we’re topping it with crisp marinated vegetables, then drizzling it all with an irresistible combo of creamy mayo and citrusy ponzu sauce.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the cucumbers. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then medium dice. In a large bowl, combine the diced cucumbers and diced peppers. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and ponzu sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the rice
    2 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, 23 to 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Stir in the mirin.

    Marinate the vegetables

    Meanwhile, pat the tilapia dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the togarashi. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned tilapia. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the cooked rice topped with the cooked tilapia and marinated vegetables (including any liquid). Drizzle with the ponzu mayo and garnish with the remaining togarashi. Enjoy! *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 145°F for fish.
