Serves: 4


  • 500 gram rock fish fillet (about 4 portions)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoon ponzu sauce (use the homemade ponzu sauce below if you don't want to buy ready made ponzu sauce)
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Home-made ponzu sauce (mix together the following)
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon dashi stock
  • 1 tablespoon yuzu juice (or lemon juice)
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mirin


  1. Pat dry fish fillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and dust with all purpose flour.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Cook the fish fillet until golden brown on both sides. Set aside.
  3. Wipe the pan clean, or use another clean frying pan. Boil together ponzu sauce and butter, then return the fish fillet to simmer for 1 minute.
  4. Turn the heat off, transfer to serving plates, and garnish with some thinly sliced scallions. You can serve with a side of simple salad, and this dish goes really well with steamed white rice.
