Whether you grill, roast, or pan-sear your Alaskan rockfish, don't forget the marinade. This one includes tamari sauce and pomegranate molasses. The oily nature of Alaskan rockfish makes it perfect for marinating.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup tamari sauce
  • 1/4 Cup pomegranate molasses
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 2 six-ounce Alaskan rockfish fillets
  • 6 large shrimp, shell on

Directions

Combine  tamari, pomegranate molasses, olive oil, lime juice, sugar, garlic, and crushed red pepper until well blended and place in bowl to marinate the rockfish. Let marinate for one hour. Add shrimp into the marinade for about 10 minutes.

Place rockfish on a very hot grill and allow to sear on one side until the rockfish gets nice grill marks and good color.

Asian Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Asian Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chili peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
