Spicy Basa with Grape Tomato Salsa
By Todd Johnson
DirectionsBasa is a Vietnamese white fish, similar to catfish. It has a mild flavor and according to Chef Miles is very versatile. You can find it in local fish markets.
Season the Basa filets liberally with your favorite blackening spice. Warm vegetable oil in a saute pan over medium high heat.
Add fish to pan. Keep it moving at first so it does not stick. After 3 minutes, carefully flip it over. Cook another 3-4 minutes.
To make the grape tomato salsa, mix tomato, grape tomatoes, red onion, green onion and pickled ginger in a large bowl. Add the lime juice and olive oil last.
Serve the Basa over a bed of rice, topped with the grape tomato salsa. Serves 2.
Recipe from Casey Miles, Joey's
Spent Thanksgiving with family and friends at Fisherman's on Pier 57.
Every year Retail businesses go through the same event of working on Thanksgiving Day. But at least with that job, Corporate will offer a good meal to the employees that are told it is mandatory to work on that Holiday.
Less than two weeks ago it was single digits here, probably made it into the low 40's the past few days. Lilac has new buds all over it and this one has started to grow.
