Delish Fish Stir-Fry

And it's time again for another edition of "How will I use all the fish I caught in Alaska?" I used sea bass, but you could use any white fish, I think.

Delish Fish Stir-Fry
(makes 4 servings)
2 filets sea bass, chopped into bite sized pieces
1 red bell pepper, diced
4 carrots, halved lengthwise and diced
3/4 cup diced red onion
1.5 inch diced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp sesame oil, separated
1 tbsp grapeseed oil, separated
2 cups low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 cup brown rice
sesame seeds, to taste

Make 1 cup brown rice according to package directions.

Cut your fish into bite-sized pieces and put into a tupperware container or a plastic bag with ~2 cups soy sauce and 1 tbsp fish sauce. Marinate in your fridge for 30-60 minutes.

Take a wide skillet and pour in 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and a 1/2 tbsp grapeseed oil. Set stove to medium heat. Sprinkle a tiny bit of fish sauce. The heating oils combined should smell super yummy.

Add onion, garlic, and ginger and stir until the onions are translucent and the garlic begins to brown.

Add carrots and peppers and 1/4 tbsp sesame oil. Stir until carrots begin to soften. Set heat to med-low and keep an eye on it, stirring occasionally.

In a second, deep sided skillet, add 1/2 tbsp sesame oil and set to med-high heat. Pour in the whole container of fish plus its marinade. Cover. Cook for ~7 minutes, or until fish is fully cooked through.

Scoop the fish out with a slotted spoon and add to the veggies, cook over medium heat, plus 1 cup marinade.

Stir until the whole batch is well-combined and stirred.

 Serve over a small amount of brown rice.

Super yummy! Enjoy!


  1. Looks incredibly tasty!! Are you STILL eating fish from Alaska or did you just go again recently? I'm so behind on everyone's lives...ugh.

  2. 200 lbs of fish does not disappear overnight. And the way they're frozen, they keep good in the freezer for three years. So I have until the end of this year to finish it off. :) Not much left to get through now, though - a nice hunk of salmon and a drawer full of sea bass.

  3. I think we caught about 400lbs (it was a joint effort between my parents, grandmother, and I). But we gave half of it away to friends and family. It's easy to get to that when you're catching 80-90lb fish. I caught a ling cod that weighed over a hundred pounds. Deep sea fishing is where it's at. :)

  4. No offense but you look pretty small to haul in a big fish. I guess you are a fish-recipe expert by now. I looked back at some of the older posts. Sounds good.
