Sesame-Dijon Whitefish

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Cynna

Delicious seafood that's simple to make but has complex flavors. I really enjoy this with a frosty glass of sauvignon blanc. This dish can be grilled or broiled and is wonderful both ways. Prep-time includes time to marinate.

Amazing fish! I used tilapia, because that's what I had in the fridge. I toasted my sesame seeds earlier in the day and allowed it to marinate the full amount of time (something I'm not always diligent about) and it was perfect. I also added a few red, green, and yellow pepper strips, and some onion strips to the dish before cooking. That, with a banana and I was in Heaven. Thanks so much!
