instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the green beans; halve crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then quarter lengthwise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop, separating the stems and leaves. In a bowl, combine the chopped garlic, quartered peppers, and chopped bok choy stems. Halve the cucumber lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add the vinegar and half the sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey (kneading the packet before opening), miso paste, remaining sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon of warm water

Start the stir-fry:
2 Start the stir-fry:

While the cucumber marinates, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved green beans in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Add 2 tablespoons of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the water has cooked off. 

Finish the stir-fry:
3 Finish the stir-fry:

Add the prepared pepper mixture; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the chopped bok choy leaves and sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the leaves are wilted and the sauce is thickened. Transfer to a bowl. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan. 

Cook the fish & serve your dish:
4 Cook the fish & serve your dish:

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and all but a pinch of the togarashi. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Turn off the heat. Serve the finished stir-fry topped with the cooked fish and marinated cucumber (discarding any liquid). Garnish with the remaining togarashi. Enjoy! 

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