    1.5 T grated fresh ginger
    1/3 c soy sauce
    1 T rice vinegar
    4 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
    1 1/2 lb. cod fillet (or any other firm, white-fleshed fish), cut into four 6 oz. pieces
    Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 c flour for dredging
    4 egg whites
    1 large clove garlic, minced
    2 small fresh red chiles (or 1 fresh jalepeno), cored, seeded & minced
    2 T canola or peanut oil
    1 lime, cut into 8 wedges


Make the dipping sauce by mixing 1 T of the ginger, the soy sauce, vinegar, 2 T water & about a quarter of the scallions. Set aside.

Rinse the cod & pat it dry with paper towels. Season both sides lightly with salt & pepper. Put the flour in a shallow bowl. Put the egg whites in a medium bowl & whisk until a thick foam forms on the surface. To the egg whites, add the garlic, chiles, and the remaining ginger and scallions and mix well.

Heat the oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Dredge each piece of cod on both sides first in the flour & then in the egg whites, using your hands to press the scallions and chiles onto the fish. Transfer to a plate.

When the oil is hot (it will bubble if you put a scallion ring in it), add the cod, spacing the pieces evenly (you may have to cook them in 2 batches), and raise the heat to medium high. Turn the fish over after 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the fish is firm to the touch and flakes apart easily when pierced with a fork, about another 4 minutes. Serve immediately with the dipping sauce and the lime wedges on the side.

  • Excellent! Very tasty. I used less soy than called for & planko instead of flour. - 8/25/11

  • This was a different way of doing cod. It was pretty good, but it was salty even with the low sodium soy sauce. - 6/10/08
