Pan Seared Yellowtail

pescaholic | Nov 27, 201509:56 AM     8

Went on a few successful fishing trips this year, and have been working on this dish. This last batch was probably the best one...figured I'd share. It's pretty simple and cooks up quickly.

Ingredients:
High-heat oil such as peanut oil
Sesame seeds
1 lb (approx) yellowtail fillet
handful of asparagus
handful of crimini mushrooms
1 chili pepper
Ponzu or soy saue

-skin fillets and cut into approx 3x3 chunks
-lightly coat fillets with peanut oil, season with salt and pepper
-chop up the veggies to your liking
-lightly coat the bottom of a cast iron pan with peanut oil, and get it hot
-sear the yellowtail fillets about 1 min on each side (to your liking, depending on how cooked/raw you prefer your fish)
-pull the fillets and set off to the side on a cutting board
-add a bit more oil to the pan if needed, then throw in the veggies
-add some sesame seeds to the pan
-fry it up to your liking, i just get a quick sear on the veggies
-pull the veggies and put in a bowl
-cube up the seared yellowtail and mix in the bowl
-throw a dash of ponzu or soy sauce on top
-mix it up and enjoy!

Edit: original posted recipe used sesame oil, which was probably not the best choice for high heat. I don't think peanut oil would change the dish much, and like someone mentioned below, you could drizzle with sesame oil to finish it. First time I ever made this, I used olive oil and it was really good as well. Anyways sorry for any confusion :)
