Rockfish shines in these spicy fish croquettes with pasilla peppers, served with a mango honey mustard dipping sauce. It makes a great appetizer for a dinner party or as part of a fun fish fry.

Ingredients

For the rockfish:

  • 1 Pound rockfish
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon thyme, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3/4 Cups Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 Cups panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 pasilla pepper
  • 2-3 Cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1/2 Cup flour

For the mango honey mustard dipping sauce:

  • 1 mango
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 Cup Dijon mustard

Directions

For the rockfish:

Cut rockfish into 2-inch chunks and place into a food processor. Give the fish a few pulses in the food processor and remember to scrape down the side into a bowl. Remove fish and put into a bowl.

Chop the herbs very fine and crush the garlic. Add the herbs, garlic, Parmigiano-Reggiano, eggs, panko bread crumbs, salt, and peppers into the food processor. Pulse for a minute or two until combined. Add ingredients to the bowl with the rockfish and combine. Take about a spoon full amount and roll in your hands to form the ball. Roll in the flour to evenly coat the outside. Be sure to do them all before you start to fry, as they will cook very fast. You can place them on a parchment paper so they don’t stick as they await their turn in the hot oil.

Heat your oil on a medium/high heat and fry these for about 5 minutes. Turn bites in oil, making sure they cook evenly.

For the mango honey mustard dipping sauce:

While the rockfish bites cook, make dipping sauce by adding 1 chopped mango, 1 tablespoon honey, and half cup Dijon mustard to food processor. Purée ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Serve fish balls with sauce.
