Sesame Crusted Fish

I am sure you will love the combination of sesame seeds and fish, which guarantees both flavor and crunch. It is very easy to make and you can serve for big parties. They are delectable and the satisfaction of biting into the sesame crusted fish fillet is an out of the world experience.

  • 250 g Fish fillets, thawed
  • 2 slice Ginger root, minced
  • 1 stalk Spring onion, chopped
  • 10 g Jiafan rice wine
  • 1 g White pepper powder
  • 3 g Salt
  • Frying oil
  • White sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp Tatar sauce or mayonnaise
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Rinse the fish fillets. Pat them dry with kitchen paper and cut into narrow strips. Place them in a shallow bowl.
  2. Marinate the fish with chopped onion, minced ginger, rice wine, pepper, and salt. Set aside for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Discard marinade. Beat egg lightly, then blend in cornstarch, flour and pinch of salt to make a batter.
  3. Heat oil until hot. Dip fish strips in batter, then roll in sesame seeds to coat. Lower the coated fish strips, several at a time, into the pan and deep-fry until golden crispy. Drain on kitchen towel and serve immediately with tatar or any desired sauce.
