Spicy Basa with Grape Tomato Salsa - 10/21/2005

2 8 oz. Basa filets 4 Tbl. blackening spice
1/8 cup vegetable oil 1/2 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup grape tomatoes 1/4 cup red onion
2 Tbl. green onion 3 Tbl. sweet pickled ginger
2 tsp. lime juice 1 Tbl. olive oil

Directions

Basa 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.

My son Keoni Bananola Lamar is 8yr old. The video is when he was 6yrs. He started doing flips on a trampoline in his grandma back yard when he was 5yr. From the first time he got on the trampoline I knew he was fearless.

As my friend and I were headed back from an adventurous day of hiking up Summit Peak and Summit Lake in the Carbon river area of the park, we came into a little clearing just in time to see a beautiful sunset on Mount Rainier and the lenticular cloud that had just formed just above it.
