- 12 ounces redskin potatoes 2 cloves garlic
- 2 fillets pollock
- 3 scallions
- 1 lime
- 3 packets butter
- 1 tablespoon miso paste
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha
- 2 packets soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 10 ounces pea shoots
1. Prepare Ingredients
Preheat broiler to high. Rinse potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice garlic. Rinse pollock and pat dry with paper towel. Rinse scallions, trim and discard roots, and thinly slice white and light green parts, discarding dark green parts. Halve lime.
2. Cook Potatoes
Place potatoes and a generous pinch salt in a medium pot and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until fork tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
3. Mash Potatoes
In a medium bowl, combine potatoes, butter, miso paste, milk, and Sriracha. Mash together using a fork until smooth. Add scallion and stir to combine. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. Set aside.
4. Cook Pollock
In a separate medium bowl, combine soy sauce, light brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, and juice of 1 lime. Season pollock with salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Pour over soy sauce mixture and broil until glaze is dark brown and sticky, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°F and bake until cooked through, about 6 minutes more.
5. Sauté Pea Shoots
Meanwhile, heat sesame oil in a large pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add garlic and pea shoots and sauté until bright green and tender, about 1-2 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
6. Plate Pollock
Divide pea shoots and mashed potatoes evenly between 2 plates. Serve alongside pollock.
