Fish Filets with sesame and Korean Pepper

Fish Filets with sesame and Korean Pepper

You’d be hard pressed to find a faster, tastier recipe than this fish with Korean pepper. Drying the fish with a paper towel then salting it ahead of time makes it much firmer.


  • 2 white fish filets
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Korean pepper
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil or ghee
  • 2 Tbsp ginger, julienned
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 Tbsp white wine or vermouth


  1. 1

    Rinse filets in running water and pat dry with a paper towel.

  2. 2

    Salt filets and lay a paper towel on top. Let rest 15 minutes.

  3. 3

    Sprinkle sesame seeds and pepper on the filets. Gently press them down with the tips of your fingers to ensure the spices stick.

  4. 4

    Heat a pan on medium and add oil.

  5. 5

    Sprinkle ginger strips in the pan and add the fish, spice-side up. Cook for 3 minutes then flip.

  6. 6

    Immediately add lemon juice and white wine. Remove pan from heat but let fish rest 2 minutes, in the pan, to finish cooking.

  7. 7

    Garnish with chive and serve.
