What makes this dish Asian is the presence of soy sauce and sesame oil. Pretty much similar with my steamed dory dish but this one has much stronger taste, and even looks like a fish tocino at first glance because of its color.
1 pack of Pangasius fillet (Cream Dory); a pack in Waltermart contains 3 fillets
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp minced garlic
dashes of onion powder or chopped spring onions
1. Slice the fish into finger sizes. Marinade the fish into the mixture of olive oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic, and onion. Set aside about 30min to an hour.
2. To cook the fish, pan fry each side to about 2 to 3 minutes or until it crystallize before flipping while also basting each side of the fish with the marinade.
