If pos­si­ble soak rice overnight in wa­ter then rinse out. Put rice and wa­ter in pot over high heat then low heat un­til the rice has ab­sorbed all the wa­ter. Cut beans half-fin­ger width and quar­ter radishes. Heat oil in a pan. Fry beans then radishes. Toss the beans and radishes through the rice and add any ex­tra raw leafy greens you like. Add tinned fish. Put all the dress­ing in­gre­di­ents in a bot­tle or bowl and shake or whisk. Stir the dress­ing though the rice and veg­eta­bles.
