Crispy Skin Branzino With Soy And Ginger
Serve this crispy skin fish alongside some white rice with the soy, ginger and green onions and you have a perfect, elevated weeknight meal.
1 bunch scallions, julienned
1 2-inch knob ginger, peeled and julienned
1/ 2 cup soy sauce
1/ 4 cup hot water
1 1/ 4 cups grapeseed oil
4 Branzino Fillets
Cooked rice for serving
In a small bowl, mix soy sauce with hot water. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup grapeseed oil on medium low, keep heating it while you cook the fish. The oil should be slightly shimmering when it’s ready.
In a nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron pan, heat 1/4 cup grapeseed oil on medium-high. Sear the fillets, skin side down, pressing down occasionally, so the skin adheres to the pan and gets crispy. Cook for about 3 min, then carefully flip the fish and cook for another 30 seconds - 1 minute.
Place the cooked fillets on a plate, skin side up, scatter ginger and scallions slivers on top and carefully drizzle the hot grapeseed oil all over. Things should sizzle and wilt. Spoon the diluted soy sauce over and around the fish, serve immediately with hot rice.
