Steps To Cook Ginger-Soy Glazed Chilean Sea Bass
- In a large GoodCook® sauté pan over medium-low heat, whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, ginger and lime juice. Whisk until the sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes.
- Mix lime juice with the cornstarch and add to the GoodCook® sauté pan. Whisk until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute, and transfer to a small bowl.
- Add olive oil to the GoodCook® sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the sea bass with garlic salt. Once the oil is hot, cook the sea bass for 2-3 minutes on each side, until browned. Reduce the heat to medium and add the sauce to the pan.
- Cook just until the fish is opaque throughout. Serve with a sprinkling of sliced scallions, sesame seeds and cilantro for garnish.
Tips For Cooking Sea Bass
- If using frozen fish filets, make sure the fish is completely thawed to get a good sear on the outside.
- Pat the fish dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. This gives your fish a golden brown color on the outside when seared.
- Once your fish is in the pan, don’t move it until it’s time to flip.
- Is your fish cooked yet? Use a fork and pull apart a section of fish from the thickest part of the filet. If it easily pulls apart, it’s cooked. Undercooked fish resists flaking, and the fish needs more time cooking.
How to Store And Reheat Leftovers
- Store leftovers in an airtight container and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- Reheat on the stovetop over low heat. Fish can dry out quickly, so make sure not to overheat it as you warm it up. If using a microwave, set the power to low and check the fish every 30 seconds to warm through.
