    A few years ago I attended a cooking class with Tony Mantuano, the owner-chef of Tuttaposto, then a very trendy restaurant in Chicago. This was one of the recipes he showed us. A fast and tasty dish.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 deg. F.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a nonstick pan.
    3. 3
      Brush fillets with the egg whites and season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Coat thickly on one side only with the sesame seeds.
    5. 5
      Saute in oil, seed side down, until golden brown.
    6. 6
      Place seed side up on a cornmeal sprinkled baking pan and bake at 400 deg. until done - this will depend on the thickness of your fillets, probably will take about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Or, you can just turn over and panfry until done.
    8. 8
      Note1: Chef recommended grouper or red snapper; I've made this also with tilapia.
    9. 9
      Note2: Baking is really handy if you are making a larger quantity - that way you can finish all the fillets at the same time.

      I used tilapia and finished it on the stovetop, so I didn't use the cornmeal. I think the flavor of the cornmeal might have clashed a bit with the sesame flavor. It was surprising how much flavor the sesame did add, and the crunch was wonderful. Thanks for posting!

      This is a nicely flavored, yet mild fish recipe. I used cod for the type fish and the oven method to finish cooking. I served it with coleslaw on the side and it really complimented the fish. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

      Simple to make and delicious to eat. I think this is a wonderful technique for preparing fish. I used tilapia. I love the taste and crunch of the sesame seeds. This would be lovely served atop brown rice, I think. Thanks for the wonderful recipe & technique.
