DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate fish in the soy and sesame oil for 15 minutes.
  • Drain and dust the fish in flour.
  • Dip into the egg and then roll in the sesame seeds.
  • Deep fry the pieces in 360 degree oil for 4 or 5 minutes. No longer -- the sesame seeds scorch easily and will be bitter.
  • Make a simple dipping sauce with some soy sauce diluted with about a 50/50 ratio of water and some fresh grated ginger. Delicious!
  • You may need to cook this in two batches so that the temperature of the oil doesn't plummet. The oil needs to maintain a constant 360 temperature if possible.
