Has this ever happened to you? The picture above is the picture that went with the recipe I adapted here. The picture below is what I made...following the recipe exactly, except for adding sesame seeds ...oh, and I used a different fish..but that's it.
Was it that I baked instead of broiled? Was the first picture staged to make it look more appealing? Either way, I just want it to be known, my picture may not be that lovely, but the fish sure tasted amazingly good!
Sriracha Glazed Fish
Adapted from Food & Wine
5 Tablespoons mayonnaise
3 teaspoons mirin (sweet rice wine), divided
3 teaspoons Sriracha, divided
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
drop or two of sesame oil
4 tilapia fillets
1 teaspoon soy sauce
In a small bowl, blend together the mayonnaise, 2 teaspoons of mirin, 2 teaspoons of sriracha, salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place the tilapia in the prepared dish and top each piece with 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Meanwhile, take remaining Sriracha mixture and add 1 teaspoon of soy, 1 teaspoon of mirin, and 1 teaspoon of Sriracha. Mix until well combined. Serve along side the fish. Enjoy!
