Caramelized Steelhead with Sweet & Sour Sauce

This delicious concoction was actually made by the Green Kitchen next door. Briefly marinating the fish in a sugar rub gives it a caramelized crust when you pan-sear it. The sauce is a nice touch.

You'll need:
salmon or steelhead

1 in ginger
2 cloves garlic
1 serrano pepper
juice of 2 limes
handful cilantro

Rub sugar into fish. Let sit 20 minutes.

In the meantime, combine sauce ingredients in a blender; blend and set aside.

Heat a non-stick skillet and add oil. Place fish in pan (skin side down if you eat the skin; top side down if you don't). Don't move it; let it cook about 5 minutes until the sides are opaque. Flip and cook 1-2 more minutes.

Serve with sauce, jasmine rice, and julienned vegetables.
