This simple Asian-style gingery seafood dish goes well with Spicy Sesame Eggplant.

Super easy. Family enjoyed it. Sauce is a little intense. Might try adding water or broth to it next time.

I love seafood. I make it at least twice a week. Unfortunately, I have to say that I hated this recipe. It was WAY too much ginger. The flavor was way too overpowering. I couldn't even eat the fish.

I've made this with Cod and Tilapia and my family prefers the Tilapia. I served it on some creamy mashed potatoes with a side of grape tomatoes sauteed in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. It looked great and was really delish!

Also very nice with pureed cauliflower. Cook the florets of one large cauliflower in boiling water until soft. Drain very well and place on a cookie sheet in a warm oven ( /- 120 degrees) for about 10 minutes to dry. Puree the florets in a food processor with one tsp miso paste (or more if you like) and about 2 tbs butter. Reheat on low fire, stirring often, and season with salt and white pepper. People are always very surprised to learn that there are no potatoes in this puree.

I don't eat meat so I made this with some breaded mock chicken patties that I first threw on the grill a few minutes to get them crispy. I also added some sliced serrano peppers at the beginning and sliced radishes at the end with the scallions. My man and I really liked the tangy flavor and the patties got a nice ginger coat on them. This was something really outside our usual. Very good!

I buy a fatty fish at the fish market where they descale and gut it and sometimes chop it a couple of times if it is long. Then i take it to fave Asian eatery where they prepare it for me. I once brought the "wrong" type of fish and they asked that I always bring a fatty fish as it takes the seasonings and sauce better.

This was good, although I'm not a huge fan of cod. The sauce was good, but the thinner pieces of my filet were chewy, so I'd recommend buying evenly-sized pieces.
