Glazed Cod With Bok Choy, Ginger and Oyster Sauce

Glazed Cod With Bok Choy, Ginger and Oyster Sauce

This quick one-skillet meal gets a boost of flavor from oyster sauce, a salty-sweet condiment made from concentrated oyster juice and soy sauce that’s often used in Chinese cooking. Here, it melds with garlic, ginger and butter to create a velvety glaze for cod fillets. If cod is unavailable, hake, striped bass or even salmon are fine substitutes. Steamed rice, soba or egg noodles are all perfect canvases for soaking up the flavorful juices.

Swirl in butter and lime juice and simmer over medium heat until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes.
