Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon mirin
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 (6-ounce) flounder fillets, with skin
  • 1 pound asparagus, tough ends trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds, lightly toasted
  • Sprigs fresh cilantro, for garnish
Directions
  • Preheat the broiler and cover the broiler pan with aluminum foil.

  • In a bowl, combine the vegetable oil, rice vinegar, mirin, 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil, the salt and red pepper flakes. Whisk to combine.

  • In a non-reactive shallow baking dish, arrange the fillets skin side down. Pour the vinaigrette over the fish, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the asparagus and cook until just tender, 1 1/2 to 3 minutes, depending upon their thickness. Drain and shock in an ice water bath. Drain and pat dry. In the saucepan, heat the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and soy sauce and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Adjust the seasoning, to taste. Remove from the heat, toss with the sesame seeds, and keep warm.

  • Remove the fish from the marinade and place on the prepared broiler pan. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat source until just cooked through, about 5 minutes.

  • Serve with the asparagus, and garnish with cilantro.
