Sesame-Citrus Sea Bass

In my last post, I wrote about a surprising sesame dessert. Now sesame seeds went savory to help me make a quick, flavorful dinner of sesame-citrus sea bass.

Sesame Citrus Sea Bass

Sea bass fillets are first immersed into a mixture of egg whites, cornstarch, white vinegar, and salt. After allowing to sit, the fish is coated in a mixture of white and black sesame seeds and pan fried in hot oil until the outside turns golden brown. The fish is served atop mixed greens with a dipping sauce made from lime juice, honey and thyme. The tender fish is made even better with the crisp crust of sesame seeds. The sweet and citrusy sauce makes for a good, if sweet, dressing for the fish and salad. This could easily be a healthy lunch to take to work that makes everyone jealous.
