Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

This is commonly eaten with rice, or with veggies. I like to wrap my fish in red lettuce leaves. Perfect for:

Bluegill, redears, tilapia, LMB, SMB.

Prepping:

Leave the fish whole, descale, gut, but leave tail and fins. Make sure to air or towel dry the fish completely.

Have a deep pan, add enough oil to cover 1/4 of the fish. It will be quick flash fry, ensuring outside is crispy, while inside is nice and moist. Level of crispiness will be your choice. Fry one side, then the other.

Prep the sauce to glaze:

Use first:

1 tbsp of fresh minced ginger.

1 tsp of fresh minced garlic.

1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce.

1 tsp of smoke paprika.

1/4 tsp of fresh grounded peppercorns.

1 tbsp of rice wine.

1/4 tsp of sesame oil.

1 tsp of orange zest, or you can use 3 tbsp of orange juice.

Set aside:

A few tbsp of long sliced green onion.

1/2 thinly sliced onion of your choice. I like purple sweet onion.

A few tbsp of largely slice cilantro.

1 tbsp of cornstarch mixed into 3 tbsp of cold water.

Get a sauce pan, add in the sesame oil, bring it to a medium flame, heat up the oil, and add in the everything. Keep stirring the items that you use first. Once the sauce starts to bubble, bring the fire to low. Leave the fire on low for the next 2 minutes, while keep stirring to prevent burning/caking.

Add in the cornstarch solution. Stir slowly until the sauce starts to thicken just slightly. Turn the fire off, keep stirring slowly until you pour onto the fish.

Add all the green onion, cilantro, and onion onto the fried fish. Pour sauce over the dressing and fish.
