Recipe courtesy of Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.
4 Alaska Black Cod fillets, fresh, thawed or frozen
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
2 tablespoons Riesling
1 small red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
4 green onions, cut in 3-inch pieces
1 large carrot, cut in julienne (matchstick) pieces
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Lemon wedges and toasted sesame seeds, for garnish
- Have all ingredients ready before beginning.
- Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Black Cod under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.
- Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
- Brush both sides of black cod with oil. Place black cod in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
- Add teriyaki sauce and cook 2 minutes more; sauce will boil up.
- Turn fillets over, add garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add wine, bell pepper, green onions and carrot. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen black cod or 3 to 4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
- To serve, top fish with vegetables and sauce; garnish with lemon wedges and toasted sesame seeds, if desired.
Makes 4 servings.
Cook's Tip: Serve with bowls of steamed jasmine rice on the side.
