    Japanese Ginger Fish

    Japanese Ginger Fish

    I got this recipe from a chef at a Scuba Diving conference in the mid 1980's in Raleigh. Folks who don't like fish will eat this. I've seen it many times and have prepared it with much success.

    Firm fish fillets. I bet spanish would be great. Tallapia is an excellent choice when nothing is biting. Sea Mullet would be awesome!

    Mix a marinade of white wine1/2 cup, soy sauce1/2 cup, prepared (wet) garlic 1 heaping tablespoon, and ginger root sliced and bruised a bit 1 heaping tablespoon.

    Marinate fish for no more than 30 min. Let em drip off a bit, woody stuff too, then shake em up in PURE Corn Starch...nothing else. Fry them quickly in peanut oil and serve hot, with rice and a light stir fry. You will very likely enjoy this. Most people do. It tends to leave your kitchen smelling fragrant for a while though. I'm not sure why it generates more aroma than other recipes but it does. Sho is fine eatin!

    Any firm fish will work, salt or fresh. Salmon, grouper, flounder, cod, catfish, etc.

    Will any types of freshwater fish work?

    If you grate the ginger instead of slicing the flavor will be better and fresh garlic is awesome. My other half has been cooking fish with this for (ouch) had to remove years.

    Yeah - I been making it for 20 years with all kinds of fish. I'm pretty sure it was the same conference as Jean Michael Cousteau was the keynote speaker at the one I attended too.

    I believe it was Roughy. I don't eat Roughy because of its perilously slow reproductive cycle. Tilapia would make a fine substitution. I can't recall two guys intructing but I've slept since then. Jean Michel Cousteau was the featured speaker. I believe the topic was sharks. I remember him saying the shark's ampuli are so sensitive to electrical impulses given off by living creatures, especially those in distress, they can receive and interpret these emissions like two D batteries' energy coming from Colorado to NC. I was impressed by that level of sensitivity.
    I recently caught a young shark and decided to eat it since I had no fin fish in the box. I lopped off the tail and bled it. I filleted it, skinned the fillets, seasoned and baked it with fresh squeezed citrus...orange I think. It was just fabulous. When it comes to sharks, I prefer to do the chewing!
    The JGF is an excellent recipe!
