Way Too Easy Sesame Fish Fillets

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.

    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.

    Yum, yum, yummy! The oriental-type flavour was really nice, and it was also good leftover! The fish we used was something I had never heard of before, cobbler or something. Definitely a make again!
