Sesame Codfish with Ginger (and Broccoli)

November 2nd, 2007

Sesame Codfish with Ginger

Seafood is good for you right? I like to incorporate fish into my dinner menu at least once a week. Again I got the idea for my recipe from the Nightly Special’s book.

Tonight I wanted to cook something fast, light and delicious since we were planning on going ballroom dancing and wouldn’t have much time after work to cook and eat.  I found this recipe and modified it to my taste and really enjoyed it!  Here’s what I did.

Brushing with olive oilPouring the chili oil

Ingredients:

  • 1 large fillet of Cod (USA Wild Caught — don’t go for that farmed fish and stay local!) Salmon or Snapper will do too.
  • 1 minced shallot (an small onion will do though)
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of shredded ginger
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • For Broccoli as a side, you’ll need some fresh or frozen broccoli

Frying the fishStahlbush Island Farms Broccoli

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Brush the fish with the olive oil
  3. Place the sesame seeds in a plate and lay the fish on the plate to coat with seeds.  Repeat on both sides (if there is no skin — no need to do this on the skin side) — set the fish aside
  4. Add the shallots, ginger, soy sauce, and chili oil to a shallow baking dish
  5. Add the olive oil to a frying pan and cook the fish on each side over a medium heat for 2 minutes each
  6. Place the fish in the baking dish and bake for about 10 minutes
  7. While you wait, fill a small pan with a small amount of water.
  8. Add the chopped broccoli to the water and steam (on high) for a few minutes to soften.
  9. Serve the broccoli with the finished Codfish

I hope you enjoy it!
