Recipe Ingredients:

Dipping Sauce:
1/3 cup low sodium tamari or soy sauce
2 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoon minced red chile
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon granulated sugar

Alaska Cod:
1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 teaspoon sesame oil
12 ounces baby bok choy, trim medium and halved lengthwise
6 ounces shiitake or crimini mushrooms, halved
1 (3-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and julienne-sliced
1 bunch green onions, trim medium and sliced
4 Alaska Cod fillets (4 to 6 ounces each), fresh, thawed or frozen

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Dipping Sauce: Thoroughly mix dipping sauce ingredients; set aside.
  2. In a deep frying pan, sauté bok choy and mushrooms in peanut and sesame oils over medium-high heat until crisp-tender. Remove and keep warm.
  3. Wipe pan clean. Bring 1-inch of water to boil; turn off heat. Place metal steamer basket in pan and open up sides. Portion ginger and 3/4 of green onions in basket.
  4. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod under cold water; place fillets in steamer. Return water to boil; cover loosely and steam just until fish is opaque throughout, about 5 to 7 minutes. (Reduce cook time by half for fresh or thawed fillets.)
  5. Serve Alaska Cod over sautéed vegetables with dipping sauce; garnish with remaining green onion slices.

Makes 4 servings.

Tip: Substitute Alaska Pollock or Sole fillets for Alaska Cod, adjusting cook time for smaller fillets if necessary.
