Sesame-crusted Salmon
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • Servings: 2-4
  • Preparation Time: 1 hour
  • Salmon filets (2-3)
  • Teriyaki sauce, to marinate
  • 1/2 c Tempura batter mix
  • Ice water
  • 1/4 c (or so) sesame seeds
  • 1/4 c Panko (Japanese bread crumbs), finely crushed
  • Peanut oil
DIRECTIONS
  1. Marinate fish in teriyaki for minimum 1hr.
  2. Heat oil in cast aluminum fry skillet on med-high for frying.
  3. Whisk together tempura with enough ice water to make a THIN batter; don't mix per package directions as this will be too thick. You want a watery consistency.
  4. Blend together sesame and panko.
  5. Dip fish in tempura batter, then dredge in breading. If you are using fish with skin, I don't bother trying to bread the skin side too well as I don't eat it- FYI. You might like it, though.
  6. Fry fish 3-4minutes per side, til breading is golden brown.
  7. Drain on paper towels before serving. I serve with a sweet & spicy sauce like TigerTiger Chutney or Sweet Chili.
