SERIOUS FOODIE ASIAN FUSION RUBBED SEA BASS WITH VIETNAMESE SWEET CHILI PINEAPPLE SLAW OVER GREEN RICE

Serious Foodie Asian Fusion Rubbed Sea Bass With Vietnamese Sweet Chili Pineapple Slaw Over Green Rice

I have been chosen as 1 of 30 bloggers to compete in the Serious Foodie Recipe Challenge.   I received several samples of the Serious Foodie sauces and rubs to use in creation of original, out of the box recipes.  I am loving their products which play perfectly into my passion for making Asian Fusion creations.  They all have Southeast Asia flavor profiles hailing from China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and the Philippines.  Each has layers of flavor and most are spicy to turn up the heat in any dish!

Serious Foodie Asian Fusion Rubbed Sea Bass With Vietnamese Sweet Chili Pineapple Slaw Over Green Rice

Here fishy fishy! I created a delicious coating for fish with the Serious Foodie Asian Fusion Sweet/Spicy Rub and it did not disappoint.  I topped the fish with a spicy pineapple slaw made with the Vietnamese Sweet Chili Hot Sauce and served it all over an herby green jasmine rice.  STOP IT!  SO GOOD!!!

Here is a step by step guide to the recipe.  Note – you can also click on the photos for a link directly to the recipe on the blog or scroll to the bottom of this post for the full recipe.

Remove the skin from 2 pounds of Chilean sea bass filets (or other firm white fish like halibut or haddock) and cut the filets into 3-5-ounce portions.  Place the fish in a single layer in a shallow baking dish.  Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon and pour 2 tablespoons of soy sauce over the fish and turn the filets to completely coat.  Set aside to marinade while you prepare the slaw and the rice.  Combine ½ cup of flour and 3 tablespoons Serious Foodie Asian Fusion Sweet/Spicy Rub in another shallow baking dish and whisk until well blended.  Set aside.

Combine ¾ cup chopped pineapple, ¾ cup chopped purple cabbage, ½ cup diced daikon radish, ¼ cup chopped mint leaves, and 1/4 cup Serious Foodie Vietnamese Sweet Chili Hot Sauce in a small bowl and toss to combine.  Toss again periodically, so the flavors can fully marry.

Combine 1 cup of raw jasmine rice, 1 ½ cups water, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil and then cover and reduce heat to low.  Cook for 15 minutes until all of the moisture is absorbed.  Remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes.  Add ¼ cup each finely chopped parsley, cilantro, basil, and mint to the pot.  Add 2 tablespoons lime juice and 2 tablespoons butter and toss everything with the rice until the butter is melted.  Cover and keep warm until ready to plate.

When you are ready, to cook the fish, preheat oven to 375 degrees and heat the 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat.

Let any excess marinade drip off the fish and then coat it in the seasoned flour, pressing to adhere the coating.  Place the coated fish in the hot oil and sear for about 2-3 minutes on the first side, without moving, until golden brown and crispy.  Flip with tongs and sear on all sides until golden brown.  Note – Chilean sea bass filets can be very thick, but if the filets are thinner, just sear on top and bottom (like with a haddock type filet).  Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake until a knife slides easily in and out of the center of the fish.  Timing will again depend on the thickness of the filets.
