  1. Dear Wen, This looks great but can it be made with brown rice? What would the timing be for adding the fish? Thanks, Ken

  2. Dear Ken,
    Thank you very much for your question! I’m so sorry for the delay in responding!
    The answer is “Yes!” The digital Mi Aroma Rice Cooker has a “brown rice” button option.
    So prep one cup of brown rice with water, add it to the rice cooker and press the button. Set a timer for 30 minutes (brown rice takes longer to cook). When the timer goes off, carefully open the lid (very hot steam inside!) and add the fish. Close the lid and let the rice cooker complete the cycle.
    Depending on the thickness of the fish and its temperature, it may be ready at the end of the cycle (with no need for an additional 5-7 minutes).
    Bon appétit!

    P.S. depending on the consistency you prefer, cooking brown rice may require a little extra water compared to cooking white rice. Another option is to soak brown rice for up to 30 minutes before starting the rice cooker.

  3. Dear Ken,
    Thank you for your question! I’m so sorry my reply below hasn’t come through before!
    Yes, the recipe can be made using the ‘brown rice function’ on a digital Mi Aroma Rice Cooker, which is takes care of the timing for brown rice. Simply prepare one cup of brown rice, place in Cooker and press the ‘brown rice’ button. Set a timer for 30 minutes.
    When the time is up, CAREFULLY open the Cooker (hot steam can cause burns) and place the fish on top. Replace the Cooker cover and allow cooking to complete. Depending on the thickness, size, temperature and type of fish, no additional wait time is needed after the cook time is completed.

    PS. Options for brown rice include allowing the rice to pre-soak for up to 30 minutes, or using a little extra water, before starting the Mi Rice Cooker.
