IMG_0086I got home late Monday from fishing on the Pacific Islander and was starving.  I wanted something quick and easy and didn’t want to go to the store.  I had fresh fish, and checked the fridge to see what else I had.  This recipe is what I came up with.  Perfect, because it only takes about 15 minutes to put it together.  I warmed up some rice, steamed some veggies and boom…dinner.  I posted the above pic on Instagram and people seemed to like it, so here’s how you make it.

EDITOR’S NOTE – The mango jam is hard to find, but the Smucker’s store locator works like a charm!

(Serves 1)

Just add fish

Just add fish


1 filet (I used lingcod, but any white meat fish would be good…rockfish, wsb, halibut, whitefish etc.)

1 tbsp of mango jam (if you can’t find mango, apricot jam or orange marmalade would probably be good too)

1/2 packet of red pepper flakes

1 tsp grated ginger

2 tbsp of sake

Making it

1. Salt and pepper the fish.  Melt a tab of butter in a pan on low heat and add the fish.

2. Brown one side and flip.  On the flip, add the mango jam, and red pepper flakes.  Grate the ginger on top of the fish (a microplaner is really nice to have to do this step).  Add the sake.

3. Let it cook thru while incorporating the ingredients with a spoon.

4. Let the sauce bubble up and reduce a little.  Serve.

That’s it.  Enjoy!
