Sesame Crusted fish with sweet and spicy Rhubarb Sauce...

You will want to make this, it tastes like spring! It is very sweet, tart and spicy...the sauce would be good on pork and chicken good!!!!!!!!

4 Tilapia or halibut fillets, about 4-6 ounces each

2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Finely sliced green onion

Place the fillets in a parchment lined baking dish. Brush with the soy sauce and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Roast for 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees(depending on thickness) or until the fish is just done...not overcooking.

For the Rhubarb sauce:

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as canola, peanut or sunflower
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced ginger
1 cup thinly sliced rhubarb, tossed with 1 teaspoon sugar
3 green onions, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 pasilla chile, cut into strips
2 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar

Heat the oil in a heavy sauté pan or wok over medium high heat. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for a scant 30 seconds. Add the rhubarb and stir fry for 30 seconds. Add the green onions, bell pepper strips and pasilla strips and stir fry for 1 minute more. Reduce the heat to low and add the last 4 ingredients. Cook to heat through.

here is all the sauce ingredients prepped and ready to go....the Rhubarb and the green onions should be cut very thinly on an angle...use plenty of ginger, you won't be sorry....

the sauce goes very quickly, maybe 4 minutes total time, make sure and not use a non-stick want the rhubarb to sure and have everything is the garlic and ginger and rhubarb....then...

the green onions...and yes I see that it is blurry,,,

the peppers...the pasilla pepper is the one that you make chili rellanos is not hot, it also does not have the white membrane that regular green pepper is located in the grocery store in the 'small peppers' section, that will be where you will find the fresh ginger also...

and the sauce...

give it a quick stir and let it reduce a bit....2 minutes tops....

and it is ready to serve!...

Enjoy !!!   Cheers to Happy  !!
