Makes: 4 servings
- 1/2 pound soba noodles or whole wheat spaghetti
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
- 1 fresh red chile pepper, seeded and chopped
- 1 piece fresh ginger (1 1/2 to 2 inches), grated
- 2 large cloves garlic, grated
- Sesame oil, for drizzling
- 1/4 pound napa cabbage, shredded (about 2 cups)
- 1 cup thawed frozen shelled edamame
- 5 - 6 scallions, thinly sliced on an angle
- 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
- 4 fillets black cod or other white-fleshed fish
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Vegenaise
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
- Bring a pot of water to a boil, salt it, add the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain, then rinse with cold water.
- While the pasta is working, position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the broiler. In a bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup teriyaki, the honey, oil, vinegar, chile, ginger and garlic; drizzle in sesame oil to taste. Toss in the pasta, cabbage, edamama and scallions. Top with the sesamme seeds.
- Arrange the fish on a lightly greased baking sheet or broiler pan. In a small bowl, combine the mayo (or Vegenaise), 2 tbsp. teriyaki and the wasabi paste. Slather the sauce over the fish. Broil until firm, opaque and well browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Serve the fish on top of the pasta. Flake the fish to combine it with the pasta as you eat.
