This pan-fried Basa With Lemon Garlic Tahini Sauce has been inspired by the Middle Eastern “Sayadieh Samak”, easy to make and just as delicious.
Put all the sauce ingredients in a mixing jar and shake vigorously to combine. Set aside.
Alternatively, you could place everything in a mini food processor or use a hand blender to puree until smooth.
Take each filet and dredge in oat flour.
Heat a pan over medium until piping hot. Add 1 Tbsp of oil.
Bake fish for 3-5 minutes on each side until browned.
Once ready, place the fish on a plate and serve with brown rice topped with caramelized shallots and pine nuts and some fresh or sautéed spinach (optional). Garnish the dish with fresh cilantro and enjoy with as much of the creamy lemon garlic tahini sauce as you like.
*Note: 1 cup of brown rice, might leave you with left overs.
*Tip on cooking Brown rice for a nice nutty texture: Start by warming 1 Tbsp olive/avocado/coconut oil in your pan, add the rice dried and pan fry for about 5 minutes (careful not to burn the rice). Then add water and proceed as per the instructions. Once you put the lid on, do not open the lid or stir the rice until it is ready.
