Korean style fried snapper with seasoning sauce/ 생선구이 양념잠

Korean style fried snapper with seasoning sauce/ 생선구이 양념잠

How to make Korean "Domi yangnyeomgui" (도미 양념구이)
I filmed this video in Zihuatanejo, Mexico, a small fishing village in the state of Guerrero. The fish there is so fresh and delicious that I couldn't resist trying out this simple, tasty, traditional Korean recipe, domiyangnyeomgui. It's fried fish, but what really makes it stand out is the seasoning sauce, where the a mix of savory soy sauce, nutty sesame oil and seeds, and fresh green onion nicely compliments the fish.

This is a very traditional way of enjoying fish in Korean cuisine. Like many Korean side dishes, it's a little salty, so you always need to pair it with rice.

You can make this with red snapper, yellow corvina, pogy — not just black snapper like I do here. You can also broil, roast, or BBQ the fish, if you don't want to fry it.

Next time you get some good fish, try this recipe, and let me know how it goes.

ingredients (serves 3-4):

1½ pound black snapper (or red snapper), cleaned and salted
1/3 cup cooking oil
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons salt
Seasoning sauce (Yangnyeomjang):

¼ cup soy sauce
3 green onions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 green chili pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon hot pepper flakes
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon roasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon roasted sesame seeds

    I love the look of the fish dish. Not many people I know like to leave the
    skin on the fish but, I enjoy it. Especially when it’s cooked crisp.

    Snapper is a delicious fish.

    С рыбкой, конечно, можно было по-лучше распорядиться. До этого видео, – всё
    только восхищало, ну а с рыбкой – прокол, как по мне. Жарить нежнейшее мясо
    рыбы – только себе вредить.
