This was delicious, I left out the clam juice as I didn't have any and used Japanese Sake and Soy sauce. It was great and we will be having it again!
Wow! My husband and I eat fish at least 3-4 times per week so I'm always looking for a new recipe. This was one of the best recipes I've ever tasted. Not too many ingredients, very easy to make, and fast. It's a light dish, but the flavor was incredible. I also served it with black rice and sprinkled it with black sesame seeds at the end. Thank you!!
I made this with 1 1/2 lbs. of sea bass and my family loved it. I followed the recipe as written but I used black sesame, rather than white, for the garnish. I served this over japonica (black) rice and it was VERY good! Thanks chia for posting this keeper recipe :)
