Loaded with whole grains and seafood, give this uncomplicated take on Fish with Bok Choy and Brown Rice a try! Ready in 10 minutes.
Crisp bok choy, flakey white fish, and chewy Minute® Ready to Serve Brown Rice offer the ideal texture for the ginger, sesame, and nutty notes in this delicious dish. Though this simple Bok Choy has simple plating, it has plenty of complex flavors!
Heat rice according to package directions.
Salt and pepper both sides of the fish filet to taste.
Melt butter in a medium skillet set over medium-high heat. Cook fish for 2 minutes on each side. Remove fish from pan and keep warm.
In the same pan add sesame oil and ginger. Cook for 1 minute.
Add bok choy to pan and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add soy sauce and stir to incorporate. Top rice with fish and serve with bok choy.
Rinse leaves just before preparing your meal. Make sure to thoroughly wipe the cabbage dry — even in those interior crevices — you want to sauté, not steam. After slicing off a sliver of the stalk, quartering is as simple as cutting the bok choy in half, flip the halves cut side down, and halving again.
With a short burst of high heat, you can really bring out nutty notes and irresistible flavor. Getting that perfectly charred bok choy just requires a little patience. Just make sure to keep an eye on the clock – you don’t want to miss out on that enticing crunch! Place quartered pieces, cut side down, and resist flipping for a minute or two.
For those who have a busy schedule, white fish is an ideal protein. Not only do they cook up nice and quickly, but they also are quite versatile!
White fish are neutral and mild, so they absorb all the flavors from the dish rather than being overpowering. If your schedule doesn’t leave much time to buy fresh fish, simply stock up on quality frozen filets. You won’t have to worry about the 2-4 day short shelf life and a frozen filet still soaks up all those flavors just as well as fresh fish would. Select the variety that works best for you.
– Quick: There are a couple of varieties that are generally found thinly-sliced. Because these filets cook quite quickly, they can be prone to overcooking – just keep your eye on them and you won’t have a problem. Halibut has a delicate flavor; however, if you want to add nutty and sweet notes to your dish, select snapper.
– Foolproof: Dense and flaky, cod is particularly easy to prepare; it’s a particularly great option when the recipe calls for plenty of herbs and spices. Another flaky fish, the moist grouper is simple to grill, smoke, roast or bake, making it a particularly versatile variety.
