Tips for Fish

Instructions

For the soy dressing:
  1. 1Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine.

For the fish:

  1. 1Using a sharp knife, cut three slashes into the skin side of the fish and season with salt and pepper.
  2. 2Place a non-stick frying pan over high heat and add the oil. Place the fish skin-side down in the pan and cook for 3 minutes.
  3. 3Turn and cook on the other side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and just cooked.
  4. 4Place the asparagus, cucumber, chile, mint and cilantro in a bowl and toss to combine.
  5. 5Serve the fish with the salad and drizzle with the soy dressing.

Beverage pairing: Loimer Grüner Veltliner “Kamptal,” Austria. There’s a lot going on in this dish, calling for a wine with great versatility. Grüner Veltliner has the lightness to not overwhelm the fish, a sensation of fruity sweetness to absorb the chile, and that signature herbal quality to pair with the asparagus.
