SEA BASS WITH SOY GLAZE AND CUCUMBER SALSA

unnamed-3

This is my go to dish when I am having a dinner party and I want to impress my guests.  It is easy to make, light and packed with flavor. With cucumbers in season right now it is a perfect pairing that adds a bit of a tang and a crunch. Recently, I shared my recipe for Sea Bass with Soy Glaze and Cucumber Salsa as seen on Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family. 

Salsa:

  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • ½ cup edamame
  • 1 ½ teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon, rice wine vinegar (Mirin)
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

Sauce:

  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup Mirin
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine

Fish:

  • 6 (3-ounce) sea bass fillets
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

 Instructions:

Salsa: Make the cucumber salsa first.  In a glass bowl, combine cucumber, edamame, soy sauce, vinegar, scallions, and cilantro, and mix well.  Cover and set aside.  You can make the salsa the day before and store in the refrigerator.

 Sauce: To make the sauce, in a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together the soy sauce, miring, sugar, and wine.  Stir frequently until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes.  Pour the sauce into a small bowl and set aside.

Fish: Dredge the sea bass fillets in the flour.  Heat a skillet on medium-high until hot.  Add the olive oil and heat until hot but not smoking.  Sauté the sea bass for 2 ½ minutes on each side, until browned.  Reduce the heat to medium; then pour in the sauce mixture and cover with a lid.  Cook until the fish is cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Place the fillets on a platter, and pour the pan juices over the top.  Serve immediately with a sprinkling of sesame seeds and the salsa on the side.
