Pan fried Hapuka

One of my favourites. Fresh Hapuka pan fried and drizzled with soya sauce and crispy garlic flakes.

Use paper towels to dry the moisture thoroughly before sifting cornflour on both sides. Then as it fries in the pan at medium high, grind some salt and pepper on top. This really gives it added flavour. Make sure it is well brown and crisp on both sides, especially the skin. Add more oil as you go along to ensure the part of the skin is immersed in oil. Takes about 4 minutes on each side. Prepare some brown garlic flakes.
To prepare the sauce:
2 tbs soya sauce
1tsp mirin
1tsp sake
1tsp Chinese wine
1tbs red wine
1tsp sugar
1tsp balsamic vinegar
1tsp Worchester sauce
½ tsp corn flour
Heat 1tsp of garlic oil in a saucepan and add the sauce. Simmer over low heat and then spoon onto pan fried fish. Add garlic flakes to garnish.  I will add some ginger juice next time.
