  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Orange Peel, Valencia, minced
  • 1 leaf McCormick® Gourmet Collection Turkish Bay Leaves
  • Pinch McCormick® Gourmet Collection Cardamom, Ground
  • 4 farm-raised striped bass fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Sicilian Sea Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Red Pepper, Ground Cayenne
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons McCormick® Gourmet Collection Sesame Seed, Toasted
  • 3/4 teaspoon McCormick® Gourmet Collection Ginger, Ground


  • 1 For the Rice, rinse rice 3 times with cold water or until water is clear. Drain. Place rice in medium saucepan. Add 2 cups water, orange peel, bay leaf and cardamom. Bring to boil on medium heat. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 to 18 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove bay leaf before serving.
  • 2 For the Striped Bass, place a bamboo steamer or steamer basket over water in a large saucepot or wok. Bring to boil on high heat. Season bass fillets with sea salt and red pepper. Place fish in steamer. Cover. Cook 4 to 5 minutes for a 1-inch thick fillet or until fish flakes easily with a fork. (Cook 1 minute longer for each additional 1/2-inch of thickness.)
  • 3 Meanwhile, mix honey, soy sauce, green onions, lime juice, sesame oil, sesame seed and ginger in medium bowl. Set aside.
  • 4 To serve, spoon rice onto center of each plate. Arrange fish over rice. Spoon Soy Ginger Dressing over top. Serve immediately.
  • 5 TIP: Prepare as directed, using center-cut salmon fillets in place of the striped bass fillets.
