Fish Recipe with Asian Dipping Sauce

Crispy Walleye With Asian Flavors


by Chef Lucia Watson


The dipping sauce is the key to this simple and distinctive way to accent your fish with Asian flavors. Really, any white-fleshed fish — walleye, perch, pike, crappie — will do, the fresher the better. Lightly dust the fish with cornmeal and maybe a little flour, then fry in hot oil until crispy. The fish and sauce go well with steamed white rice or soba noodles tossed with soy sauce and cilantro.
