4 fillets, skin off, bones removed

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce

2cm piece ginger, finely grated

1 large clove garlic, crushed

1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted (see notes)

3 zucchini

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

3 green onions, finely sliced on the diagonal

Steamed rice, to serve


Combine the teriyaki, ginger, garlic, sugar, sesame oil and sesame seeds in a bowl. Add the fish, cover and marinate for 10-20 minutes.

Trim the ends off the zucchini and quarter lengthways. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a high heat and add the oil. Add the zucchini and cook for about 2 minutes, until they begin to colour. Remove to a warm plate.

Remove fillets from marinade, reserving marinade.

Return the pan to the heat, add the fillets, and cook for 1-2 minutes, until the edges have turned opaque. Turn the fillets, add the zucchini and the reserved marinade and cook for a further 1-2 minutes, adding a few teaspoons of water if the marinade begins to caramelise.

Arrange the zucchini on plates, top with fillets and garnish with green onion. Serve with steamed rice.

Notes: Toast sesame seeds in a dry frying pan for a couple of minutes, tossing gently to prevent them burning, or under a griller (but watch them closely).
