If you’re looking for elegant simplicity, this is the dish for you. Pan-cooked fillets of salmon achieve moist and flaky pink perfection when coated with a tangy and tart sauce of ponzu, honey and garlic. Naturally, you’ll want to serve them over a mound of rice, doling out a cute little cucumber and radish salad for crispness. Finally, turn up the dial on the Asian theme by adding wasabi powder to mayo for one hot condiment.

Cook the rice
Mince the garlic. In a medium pot, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté ½ the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and ⅓ of the spices; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff the rice.
