Ingredients

Servings  4  

  • 2 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 3 to 4 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoon canola oil (divided)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ginger piece (peeled, roughly chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 4 scallions, dark and light parts separated
  • 4 cod
  • 1 bunch asparagus spears (cut into 2-inch pieces)
  • 2 can sliced water chestnuts (drained)
  • 1 bag frozen peas (thawed)

Directions

  1. Into the bowl of a food processor, add oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons water, 1 tablespoon oil, brown sugar, ginger pieces, garlic, and light scallion parts. Process until mixture is pureed, about 1 minute. Reserve 2 tablespoons of marinade in the fridge for the vegetable mixture.
  2. In a shallow container, add cod fillets and pour remaining marinade over it. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 12 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat the broiler. Prepare the vegetables for the stir-fry. Snap the ends off each asparagus spear and cut into 2-inch pieces. Chop the green parts of the scallions.
  4. Remove fish fillets from the marinade, wiping a majority of the marinade off each piece of fish. Place onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Broil fish a few inches away from heat with the broiler door cracked slightly open until fish can be easily flaked with a fork, about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, warm 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick pan or wok over high heat. Add asparagus; saute, stirring constantly, until mostly tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons reserved marinade, 1 to 2 tablespoons water, water chestnuts, and peas. Stir constantly until peas are cooked, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and serve stir-fry with the cod.

Cooking Tip: If needed, add a few more tablespoons of water to the vegetable stir-fry if the marinade looks like it might burn while sauteing.

Keep it Healthy: Broiling requires less oil than sauteing fish on the stovetop while also adding a bit of tasty char to the fish.

Tip: Other firm white-fleshed fish, like halibut or sea bass, can be substituted for the cod.
