This rich, umami broth is so flavorful and works perfectly with the light and flaky fish. Yes, winter comfort food can come in such a light and healthy dish, too.

Ingredients

Broth

  • 4 cups vegetable stock, such as Manischewitz Vegetable Broth

  • 2 1-inch knobs ginger

  • 4 stalks fresh lemongrass, sliced in half and crushed with something heavy (in order to release flavor)

  • 2 dried shiitake mushrooms

  • 1 tablespoon mirin

Fish Bowl

  • 1 to 2 bulbs fennel, checked and thinly sliced

  • 2 (4- to 6-ounce) red snapper or salmon fillets

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon Tuscanini Olive Oil

  • 1/2 cup thinly chopped kale, checked or bug-free

  • 1 radish, thinly shaved

  • fresh cilantro, to garnish

  • Gefen Sesame Seeds, to garnish

  • sliced scallions, to garnish

  • lime wedges, to garnish

Directions

Prepare the Red Snapper with Lemongrass-Ginger Broth

1.

In a large pot, combine stock, ginger, lemongrass, dried shiitake mushrooms, mirin, kombu (if using), soy sauce, and peppercorns. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer on very low for 20 minutes.

2.

Discard ginger, lemongrass, mushrooms, kombu, and peppercorns with a slotted spoon.

3.

Add fennel and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

4.

To cook fish, pat skin dry and sprinkle with salt. Heat oil in a skillet until very hot. Place fish into skillet, skin side down, and press down with a spatula for three to five minutes to achieve an even crisp. Flip and sear for another two minutes or until cooked through.

5.

To serve: Place fennel in bowls with chopped kale. Top with fish, then add broth. Finish with radish, cilantro, sesame seeds, scallions, and lime wedge.

Notes:

This broth goes really well with any white fish, or sous vide salmon. The fish can also be poached in the broth, if preferred.
