Japanese Style Fish

Japanese Style Fish created by The Flying Chef

Tomoko and I cooked this last night from a written in Japanese cookbook. This is my version of how it happened!!!

Units:

ingredients

  • 4 firm white fish fillets, about 180 g each
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • cornstarch, for dusting fish
  • 1 small onion, finely julienned
  • 1 small carrot, cut into matchstick sized pieces
  • 34 cup dashi, made up to the directions on your packet (would be "OK") or 3/4 cup chicken stock (would be "OK")
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 2 12 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with
  • 12 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons finely sliced green onions

directions

  • Dust the dish in the cornstarch, shaking off any excess.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy based frypan, and cook your fish fillets until done.
  • We used very thick fillets last night, and it took about 10 minutes.
  • When the fish is done, remove to a warm plate, increase the heat in the pan and add the carrot and onion.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes, before adding the dashi, sugar, sake and soy.
  • Cook this mix for another 2 minutes, then add the cornflour/water mix to the pan along with the veg mix and cook until this has thickened-about another 2 minutes.
  • Serve this sauce over the fish fillets, and garnish with a little sliced green onion.

    Interestingly one of my daughters said that this would be better with chicken instead of fish... hm.. maybe I will try that soon. Flavor of fish itself was somewhat on the blandish side, so I will add salt to the cornstarch next time. Sauce was very nice. Thank you for posting.

    I did not care for this dish. There wasn't enough flavor - i think some extra soy sauce would have helped and maybe adding some chile.
