Sesame Seed Red Snapper With Bok Choy and Edamame

Sesame Seed Red Snapper With Bok Choy and Edamame


  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 6-ounce boneless red snapper fillets
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon shichimi togarashi (a Japanese spice blend) or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 teaspoons black sesame seeds
  • 12 ounces baby bok choy, trimmed
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame


  1. Place a rack 5 inches from the broiler and preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, soy sauce, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons oil; set aside.
  2. Place snapper on foil-lined baking sheet, skin side down. Rub remaining 1 tablespoon oil on fish, season with salt, and sprinkle with shichimi togarashi and sesame seeds. Broil just until fish is opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add bok choy and edamame to boiling water. Cook until bok choy is bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain and divide among serving plates, along with fish. Drizzle the dressing over fish and vegetables.
