Attention gluten free dieters, Raskin’s offers this amazing topping mix to coat your fish. “TOKYO SESAME TOPPING”– it is a blend of sesame seeds, dehydrated vegetables and spices. The crunch and the flavor of this mix are delicious. We paired it with Nile perch and a plate full of vegetables for a healthy and filling entrée.
Nile perch is a wild caught fish; it can be found in the lakes and rivers of central Africa. Nile Perch is mild flavored and has a moist, medium-firm texture. Raw fillets will have a pinkish, flesh-toned tint to them, but will cook up snow white.
In this recipe, the fish fillets are patted dry and coated on both sides with Raskin’sTokyo Sesame topping. They are then seared in a hot pan until cooked through. We then used the same pan to sauté our rainbow colored veggie sides. Goi is the general term for salad in Vietnamese.
