Preparation

Boil the noodles
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the noodles to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 5 to 7 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the noodles; drizzle with oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the cod
While the noodles boil, in a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Thoroughly pat the cod dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the cod* to the pan and cook, 2 to 3 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Carefully transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out and reserve the pan.

Sauté the vegetables
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and ginger; season with the remaining spice blend. Sauté, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the snow peas and bok choy; sauté, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes (3 to 4 minutes for 4 portions), until the snow peas are crisp-tender and the bok choy have wilted.

Make the sauce & combine the noodles
Juice the orange. In a small bowl, combine the orange juice, ponzu sauce and brown sugar. To the pan of vegetables, add the ponzu-orange sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved; season with S&P to taste. Add the cooked noodles and toss well to combine.
