Wasabi-Glazed Whitefish
Ingredients
2
tablespoons light soy sauce
1
teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/2
teaspoon sugar
1/4
teaspoon wasabi powder or 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
4
4 ounces fresh skinless whitefish, sea bass, or orange roughy fillets, 1-inch thick
1
medium zucchini, coarsely shredded (about 1-1/3 cups)
1
cup sliced radishes
1
cup fresh pea pods
2
tablespoons snipped fresh chives
3
tablespoons rice vinegar
Directions
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Slaw:
  4. 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.
