Ingredients
  • 16 sesame seed candies
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 3 teaspoons freshly chopped tarragon leaves
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped chives
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, plus 4 tablespoons for cooking fish
  • 2 pounds fresh seabass, cut into 6 portions
  • 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Grind the sesame seed candies into a rough powder, leaving a few chunks for texture.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Mix the 1 cup of bread crumbs, fresh herbs, ground sesame seed candies and the 3 tablespoons of oil together in a small bowl. The oil should wet the crumbs and will help to keep the crumbs on the fish.

  • In a large hot skillet add 4 tablespoons of canola oil. When the oil is hot add the fish and sear 1 side until golden brown. Remove the fish from the pan to a large oven-proof serving dish and allow to cool slightly, around 3 minutes.

  • Using a spatula flip the fish over and lightly coat the seared side of the fish with the mustard. Cover the top of the fish with the bread crumb mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until flesh is firm, about 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
