Few things are more important than family dinner. I missed our time around the dinner table the most when I was away on location and during the time when Angela was at Andover. Well, I actually missed hugging and kissing them the most, but dinner time was a close second. I savor every dinner that the four of us can eat together. I want each and every one of our dinners to be beautiful and delicious. I don’t want any of it to go to waste. Cooking to me, especially for my loved ones, is an art and pleasure on par with performing in films.
Today, I revisited the salmon recipe that so many of you loved. The same marinade worked perfectly for the rock cod. Compared to the salmon, the cod took less time to cook. This recipe makes 4 servings and Peter, the fish lover of the family, had three servings all by himself!
Ingredients for Soy Sriracha Glazed Cod:
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce (or tamari* for gluten-free) 60mL 低盐鲜酱油
2 tablespoons honey 30 mL蜂蜜
1 tablespoon rice vinegar 15mL米醋
1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce (or to taste) 15mL甜辣椒酱
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger 15mL 姜末
1 tablespoon minced garlic 15mL 碎蒜
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions, for garnish 30mL青葱
(Above ingredients are for the marinade.)
1 pound rock cod fillet, cut into 4 (4-ounce) pieces 一磅左右石斑鱼
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil 25mL 麻油
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced 红甜椒
2 scallions, cut to one inch slices 青葱
In a 1-gallon zip-top plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic. Add the cod, toss to coat evenly, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours, turning the fish once.
Remove the cod from the bag, reserving the marinade.
Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add the sesame oil. Rotate the pan to coat the bottom evenly and add the cod with the bell pepper and the cut scallion. Cook until one side of the fish is browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip the cod and cook until the other side browns, about another 1 minute. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the reserved marinade and cook until the fish is cooked through, 2 -3 minutes.
