Easy, quick fish. Not good for salmon or tuna. It is best with thin fillets like bream, whiting or catfish. Sometimes I add grated fresh ginger to the oil prior to adding the fish.
- 4 -6 thin fish fillets
- 2 teaspoons oil
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (toasted)
- 1 -2 teaspoon soy sauce
- 2 scallions, sliced diagonally (green onions)
- Heat oil in pan over med-high.
- Pat dry the fillets (prevents soggy fish).
- Fry fillets 2-3 minutes and turn over for another 2-3 minutes, or until done to your taste.
- Add soy sauce and sesame oil and gently turn to coat both sides.
- Place on serving platter, pour hot oil/soy from pan over fish, scatter with sesame seeds and then scatter scallions.
Good, easy, fast recipe. Will make again.
Firstly I picked the wrong fish (baby snapper fillets - won't do that again when we make it again). We had a 3, 4 and 5 stars given so settled on 4. Very easy to make and quick would highly recommend for a quick midweek dinner. Thank you omeomy #2, when I next cook with the right fish will review again. Made for Recipe Swap #6 July 2007.
The short prep time was what attracted me to this recipe, but sadly, the dish was not well liked by my kids. Maybe I prepared it wrong, so I may try again and see how it turns out. Thank you for posting.
