At the butcher/traiteur/fishmonger last week, I bought two nice fillets of a different looking fish, maybe a river fish and put them in the freezer. Unfortunately, I didn’t note the name although the proprietor seemed excited about it and said the name several times.
So that’s why. Maybe a type of carp or catfish? Firm flesh and very tasty. Perfect for the teriyaki marinade.
Makes a nice lunch or dinner with some fried rice https://cookinginsens.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/really-easy-fried-rice/ and spicy kimchi.
Teriyaki Marinated Fish
1 1/2 lb catfish fillets
Chinese five spice powder
1 tbsp sesame oil
Sprinkle the fillets with the five spice powder then marinate the fish in the teriyaki marinade for about 30 minutes.
Heat the sesame oil in a saute pan and fry the fish for about 4 minutes per side.
