This healthy fish and zippy slaw can be prepared easily on a weeknight or for a special occasion. I like to serve the dish with steamed jasmine rice. —Donna Noel, Gray, Maine

  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup sake
  • 1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 sole or whitefish fillets (4 ounces each)
  • SLAW:
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Chinese or napa cabbage
  • 1/3 cup each julienned cucumber, radishes, carrot and sweet red pepper
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and julienned
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

  1. In a large skillet, combine the first 7 ingredients. Bring to a boil; add fish. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 8-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cabbage, cucumber, radishes, carrot, red pepper, jalapenos, cilantro and mint. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, soy sauce, salt and pepper; pour over vegetables and toss to coat. Serve slaw with fish.
