Dukan Korean Inspired Fish

Korean Inspired Fish
We liked this recipe, we probably would have liked it better if it were less salty.

Korean food is very popular in Hawaii and one of our friends started telling everyone how much she loves Korean food.  She made us hungry for some Korean food and one our favorite dishes is Fish Jun.  Fish Jun is normally just fish with salt and pepper dipped in an egg batter and fried served with a dipping sauce.  We decided to try making Fish Jun with a Meat Jun recipe.  We used Sam Choy, a local Hawaiian  chef's meat jun marinade for our recipe.  If you like your food saltier, use all soy sauce instead of the 1/8 c. soy sauce and 1/8 c. water.  We always use low sodium soy sauce, but that is still too salty for us.

We also decided to try this recipe without the flour, even though in consolidation we would have use oat bran ground into flour or wheat flour.

Serves 2-3
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time - 15-20 minutes

3/4 pound white fish, we used a marlin, you'll want to cut your fish into thinner slices if it isn't thin already
1/8 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/8 c. water
2 T. sesame oil
1 green onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 eggs, beaten

Dipping sauce:
1/8 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/8 c. water
1 stalk green onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 t. ground sesame seeds or 1/8 t. sesame oil

Mix the soy sauce, water, sesame oil, green onion and garlic in a bowl.  You can either marinate your fish for an hour or dip your fish in the sauce, then in the egg batter, then fry in a pan sprayed lightly with olive oil spray.   The fish cooks fast, so you'll want to mix your dipping sauce ahead of time.  We served our fish on whole wheat sandwich thins so we used the dipping sauce as a sandwich dip sauce.
