|Pacific Rim Halibut or Salmon
fresh salmon or halibut steaks or filets
East West Ginger Teriyaki sauce
1 pint Tony's Mango Salsa (or other prepared tropical salsa)
shredded iceburg lettuce
Asian rice noodles or Jasmine rice
Veggie stir fry - recipe follows (optional)
Marinate fish in teriyaki for up to 1 hour. Leave salsa out at room temperature to take the chill off. Meanwhile, preheat grill, grill pan or frying pan and prepare noodles or rice. If cooking indoors, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Grill. Prepare direct grill of medium high heat. Brown first side, turn of flame, turn fillets, top with salsa and continue to cook until done.
Indoors: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Preheat an oven safe grill pan or frying pan on a medium hot flame. Oil pan and sear fish on the first side to brown nicely. Turn, top with salsa and transfer to oven, cooking until done - about 6 minutes longer depending on conditions.
Serve with over rice or noodles with shredded lettuce - great with the quick stir-fry recipe that follows. Chef Mick (Michaelangelo) Rosacci, www.TonysMarket.com -- www.TonyRosacciCatering.com
Quick Veggie Stir-Fry
1 TBS canola oil
1 tsp minced ginger
˝ tsp minced garlic
˝ tsp hot chile oil, or pinches of crushed red chile (optional)
2 packs Tony’s Veggie Stir Fry (a medley of broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, bell peppers, onions and snow peas)
pinches of salt and pepper
Drizzle of soy sauce or tamari*
1 cup sliced mushrooms (shiitake or other)
Sliced almonds, cashews, peanuts or sesame seeds - toasted**
Prepare all your ingredients and have them at stove side. Preheat a large wok over high heat. Turn exhaust fan on.
Add oil, ginger, garlic and hot oil or pinches of crushed red pepper (if using). Take care, these will sizzle and sputter! Add Tony’s Veggie Stir fry and cook at high heat, stirring regularly, until just beginning to soften - about 2-3 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to cook until veggies are done to your liking - for maximum health benefits, they should still be slightly crisp inside and soft on the outside.
Sprinkle with toasted nuts and serve immediately. - Chef Mick Rosacci, Tony’s Market
Notes: * For more flavor, drizzle with East West Teriyaki or Sizzling Stir-Fry Sauce. ** Toast nuts in a large skillet over medium heat - toss regularly until lightly brown - time depends on nuts and conditions.
