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.
