1 pounds monkfish tail

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 tablespoons oyster sauce

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoons salt

1 tablespoons garlic chopped

1 tablespoons shallots chopped

0.5 teaspoons turmeric

3 tablespoons lemongrass chopped

3 tablespoons cilantro chopped

1 tablespoons fresh chilies chopped

1 package sesame rice crackers


Step 1

Thoroughly clean monkfish tail and chop into quarter-inch dice. For marinade, combine fish sauce, oyster sauce, honey, salt, garlic, shallots, turmeric and lemongrass in a shallow bowl to make marinade. Marinate monkfish for one hour.

Step 2

Heat sauté pan and add vegetable oil. Sauté monkfish in small batches until no longer translucent. Do not overcrowd the pan. Set aside cooked fish on paper towels to drain. When the last batch of fish is no longer translucent, add chopped cilantro and chopped fresh chilies. Grill, oven-roast or microwave rice crackers until puffed and brown.
