A quick fish dish...ginger honey lime glazed opah
Posted by MrsTooth at 11:10 AM
I threw this together Friday night, and we really liked the results. We're not big on marinating fish in citrus when I'm going to cook it as it tends to make much of the fish a bit mushy. So I went with a glaze. Sorry I don't have exact amounts. You can add more or less of things to suit your taste.
In a small saucepan, mix:
2-4 tbsp honey
the zest of a lime
the juice of two limes
1/4 cup sake
1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger, along with a few slices of the ginger
a dash or two of soy sauce
Chop up some macadamia nuts and roast them in a 400F oven for 5 minutes or so, until brown and toasty.
Simmer on low heat until reduced and syrupy
For the fish:
1 good sized fillet of opah or other firm fish
2 tbsp flour
salt and pepper
1 tsp wasabi powder
Mix flour and seasonings in a shallow dish. Lightly coat fish, just enough so it won't stick to the pan like crazy. Heat a skillet over moderate heat, add a bit of olive oil, then cook the fish to desired degree of "done". Remove from pan, let rest a moment or two, slice and plate. Spoon over the sauce, sprinkle with some of the nuts, and serve with a veg and some steamed white rice. Yummy!
