Cornstarch, egg white, and sesame seeds form a crackling crust on these salmon fillets. The flavor of the toasted sesame seeds is complemented by the Asian-flavored sauce surrounding the fish, but don't serve the sauce over the fish or you'll lose the crunch.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1/2 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
1 egg white
2 pounds center-cut salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup cooking oil

DIRECTIONS
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sherry, chicken broth, sugar, ginger, and garlic. In another small bowl, stir together the 2 teaspoons cornstarch and the water.


Whisk together the egg white and the 2 tablespoons cornstarch. Brush the skinless side of the salmon with the egg-white mixture and then dip it into the sesame seeds to coat.


In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Put the salmon in the pan, sesame-seed side down, and cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Turn and cook until just done, about 3 minutes longer for a 1-inch-thick fillet. Remove.


Pour any oil from the pan. Add the soy-sauce mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes, stirring. Whisk in the cornstarch-and-water mixture and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute longer. Serve the salmon with the sauce poured around it.


Fish Alternatives


Tuna steaks would be perfect with the sesame-seed crust and the sauce. You can also use salmon steaks instead of fillets.

Nice and Healthy!
I didn't have sherry so I substitued it with Chinese Cooking Wine. The sesame crust gave a nice 'crunch'. I served along with it some steamed asparagus and green beans with a side of buckwheat.
