2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice, coconut milk, and ¼ cup water. [If cooking for 4 people, use the same quantity of water.] Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.


Make the zucchini

  • Cut the zucchini lengthwise into quarters, then crosswise into 2-inch pieces.
  • Cut the tomatoes in half.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, arrange the zucchini in a single layer, cut sides down, and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned and starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the zucchini to the other cut sides and cook, undisturbed, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add more oil between batches if needed. 

Transfer to a medium bowl, add the tomatoes and Japanese sesame dressing, and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Do not clean the pan. While the zucchini is cooking, start preparing the fish.


Cook the fish

  • In a small bowl, stir together the tamari and honey-ginger glaze. 
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel.

In the same pan used for the zucchini, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.


For barramundi: 

Add the fish, skin side down, and cook until the skin is crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate; discard the skin if desired.


For halibut and salmon: 

Add the fish and cook until lightly browned on the bottom side, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook until the flesh is opaque and flaky, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Immediately add the tamari-ginger glaze to the pan, then remove from the heat. Swirl the glaze in the pan until thickened slightly, about 30 seconds. Brush or spoon the glaze over the fish.


Finish the rice

  • Coarsely chop the cilantro; set aside half for garnish.

Add half the cilantro to the rice and stir to combine.


Transfer the rice to individual bowls. Arrange the zucchini and tomatoes on one side of the rice and place the fish on the other side. Garnish with the remaining cilantro and serve.
