Before starting, wash and dry all produce.

Bring 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) to a boil in a covered medium pot. Add rice and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl for 4 ppl). Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove pot from heat, rest, covered, for 5 min.


While the rice cooks, peel, then mince or grate garlic. Finely slice half the ginger (use all for 4 ppl). Slice green onions, separating green and white parts. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise, then into 1/2-inch thick half-moons. Pat fish dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle sesame seeds evenly over the tops only. (NOTE: Avoid getting seeds on the skin side.)


Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then fish, skin side down. Cook, until skin is golden-brown and crispy, 4-5 min. Flip and cook, until sesame seeds are golden and fish is cooked through, 2-3 min.** Transfer to a plate. Carefully wipe pan clean.


While the fish cooks, heat a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add half the garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 sec.


Heat the same pan (from step 3) over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then remaining garlic, ginger and white parts of green onion. Cook, stirring, until onions softened, 1 min. Add soy sauce mirin blend. Bring to a boil, then cook, until sauce slightly reduces and thickens, 1-2 min. Remove from heat, then remove ginger and discard.


Fluff rice with a fork, then divide between plates. Serve fish and zucchini alongside. Spoon butter soy sauce over plate. Sprinkle over the green onions.
