Smoked Oilfish with green asparagus and sesame dressing

I N G R E D I E N T S | 4 Persons                       

  • 4x (170g) Oilfish 
  • 500g Green asparagus
  • Salt
  • Water
  • 1 tbs Sesame oil
  • 4 tsp Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 60 g Sesame seeds


  1. Cut the Oilfish into portions of 170g (6 oz), for each person. Place in the smoke oven and let smoke for about 20 minutes.
  2. Use your fingers to snap off the woody ends of the green asparagus. Cut them on the diagonal into approximately 5 cm lengths. If they are shorter, keep them that length.
  3. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add all the asparagus to the boiling water and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until bright green and crisp tender. Eat one to make sure.
  4. For the dressing, combine sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar in a bowl, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Taste and make sure the flavor is balanced between being rich, salty and sweet. About 2 hours before serving, toss the asparagus in the dressing and set aside for the seasonings to penetrate.
  5. Place the smoked oilfish on top of the asparagus and garnish with a shower of roasted sesame seeds.

Bon appetit!
