Jan. 30, 2010


Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm)
Fresh ginger slices 6 , unpeeled (Quarter Size Slices, 1/4 Inch Thick)
Scallions 4
Cornstarch 4 Tablespoon
Pineapple juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Vegetable oil 26 Teaspoon (1/2 Cup Plus 2 Teaspoons)
Cider vinegar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Reduced sodium soy sauce
Ketchup 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Sugar 4 Teaspoon
Pepper 1/2 Teaspoon
Egg white 1
Halibut steaks/Other very firm white fish 1 3/4 Pound
Sesame seeds 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)


1 In a food processor, mince the garlic. Add the ginger and coarsely chop. Add the scallions and coarsely chop. In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the cornstarch with the pineapple juice.

2 In a small skillet or saucepan, warm 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the garlic, ginger and scallions, and cook, stirring, until the garlic begins to brown, about 3 minutes.

3 Add the cornstarch-pineapple juice mixture, the vinegar, 2 teaspoons of the soy sauce, the ketchup, sugar and pepper, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer while you prepare the fish.

4 In a shallow bowl, beat the egg white with the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 teaspoons soy sauce.

5 Cut the fish into 1/2 inch-wide strips. Add the fish to the egg white mixture and toss to coat well. Place the fish strips on a plate and sprinkle them with the sesame seeds, turning the fish to coat all sides.

6 In a medium nonstick skillet, warm the remaining 1/2 cup oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish in batches and cook until golden, about 3 minutes per side. As they are done, place the fish on a paper towel-lined plate in a low oven to keep warm.
