Pan-Seared Cod with Lemongrass-Ginger Sauce

Baby Bok Choy, Carrots & Peanut-Cilantro Rice

Cooking time

25 minutes




660 /serving

Let the scent of lemongrass lure everyone to the table. This fish dish entices with its East Asian accents, while keeping mess to a minimum by using the same pan three times: first, to sauté the vegetables with ginger and garlic, then to cook the cod to ideal tender flakiness, and finally to make the deliciously perfumed sauce. Finishing the rice with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro is a low-key move that ensures you’ll score high.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 3 cups water and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Add ½ the garlic and ½ the ginger; stir well. Sauté, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant; season with S&P. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pan.
