  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium ovenproof skillet, heat grapeseed oil over medium-high heat. Season snapper with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Immediately transfer skillet to oven and cook until opaque, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven and keep warm.

  • In a medium skillet, add olive oil and minced ginger. Cook over medium heat, until ginger just begins to brown, about 1 minute. Add bok choy and cook until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper; sprinkle over cashews and toss to combine.

  • To serve, spoon some of the sauce onto each of 4 plates. Top with bok choy and snapper; serve immediately.

I could not find baby bok choy in any local grocery store. There is no video of the recipe being cooked, and you finish up with a ton of delicious sauce and unless you also cook lots of rice (it took 3 cups of rice for me), you'll be throwing most of the sauce away. I would recommend a bowl, not a plate for this recipe. The fish really needs to fry until it's a slightly brown if it's only in the oven 7 minutes. My girlfriend liked it though, and thats what counts.

This was really delicious --- mild and sweet -- I double the amount of bok choy and served it in a bowl with the sauce as well as some rice stir fry noodles ..... definite keeper!

I've been a fan of Harold since seeing him on Top Chef. He seems to be much more comfortable in front of a camera and even enjoyed himself. Invite him back again soon. Can'tr wait to try his red snapper recipe.

I made this tonight...didn't have the kaffir lime, but it was delicious anyway. Reminded me of my trip to Thailand. The chef made it look so simple, but it takes me a bit of time to toast the cashews, chop the garlic and ginger, put the sauce together, etc. Wish I had a prep cook. Anyway, it was worth it!
