Ingredients

1 cup long-grain white rice
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 pound black cod or salmon
1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut in half crosswise
4 ounces small shiitake mushrooms, stems removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Cook rice according to the package directions. Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and heat broiler.
  2. Mix hoisin sauce and 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Place fish, skin-side down, on a foil-lined baking pan and spread sauce over the top.
  3. Toss asparagus, mushrooms, oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Scatter vegetables evenly around fish.
  4. Broil, stirring vegetables once, until they are tender and fish is cooked through and opaque, 6 to 8 minutes, depending on thickness.
  5. Slide a spatula between the skin and the fish; discard skin. Divide fish among individual plates. Serve with vegetables and rice.

Serves 4.
