Asian Style Sesame Crusted Cod served over ginger shallot black rice, roasted mushrooms and finished with an Asian sauce for a delicious low calorie dinner.
For this recipe we used fresh cod but feel free to use any type of fish that is reasonably priced and one where you like the taste. White fish like cod, halibut or basa are great because they are mild in flavor, salmon always works well, you can cut salmon into beautiful fillets and the sesame crust sticks perfectly to the salmon.
Simple Asian-inspired dish that is easy to put together. Its well balanced and low on calories so perfect for those weeknights when your looking for something lighter to eat yet filling.
The black rice is full of flavor and umami. Black rice is full of antioxidants, minerals and fibre almost like a superfood and can be found in the health food section of your local grocery store. What flavors the rice is cooking it in shallots, ginger and chicken broth and of course we topped the rice with buttery roasted mushrooms for a clean-eating easy to make meal perfect for weeknight dinners. The black rice takes a bit more time to cook but its totally worth the wait. It has a nutty yet slightly sweet flavor but if your on a time crunch we recommend opting for wild rice.
To serve simply garnish the dish with sliced radish, chillies, chopped green onions and finish with a drizzle of Asian dressing.
