Wasabi, the head-clearing green condiment traditionally served with sushi, adds subtle fire to this fish dish. Look for wasabi powder or paste in Japanese markets and large supermarkets.
- Combine soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of the seasme oil, 1/4 teaspoon of the sugar, and the wasabi powder. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of fish with soy mixture.
- Lightly grease the rack of a gas grill. Preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place fish on the grill rack directly over heat, tucking under any thin edges. Cover and grill for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish just flakes easily when tested with a fork, gently turning once halfway through grilling.
- Meanwhile, for slaw, in a medium bowl combine the zucchini, radishes, pea pods, and chives. Stir together vinegar, the remaining sesame oil, and the remaining sugar. Drizzle over the zucchini mixture; toss to coat. Serve the fish with slaw. Makes 4 servings.
