  • Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir shallot and ginger until starting to brown, about 2 minutes. Pour in soy sauce mixture; simmer until slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Score both sides of the pompano in a crosshatch pattern. Pat dry with a paper towel. Season both sides and inside of the pompano with dill, salt, and pepper. Slice remaining 1/2 of the lime and arrange slices inside. Drizzle remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over pompano; rub over both sides.

  • Layer cabbage leaves in the bottom of a large baking dish; place pompano on top. Pour soy sauce mixture over pompano. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil. Let marinate as oven preheats.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Bake pompano in the preheated oven until fragrant, about 20 minutes. Remove aluminum foil; continue baking until pompano flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes more.

  • Peel back skin and lift pompano flesh off the bones using a fork. Transfer to a serving plate.

Use 1/8 meaurement of allthe ingredients and bake it over a rack. Opt out puting it on top of vegies. Nice flavour. Made it 3x already. Read More

Delicious complex flavor. Not for those watching their sodium intake but wonderful smokey flavor--even after I reduced the soy sauce requirement by 50% Read More

Fantastic! This fish has incredible texture. I tried it without the cabbage leaf, but pan too messy that way. Will follow exactly next time but using only 1/4 of sauce recipe. Only hard part is gutting those fish! Read More

I made it from the recipe short on soy sauce only 1/2 cup and used German white wine as I had no rice wine. I liked it but wife thought it was "too fishy" (not for me though). Read More

This is one of the best fish recipes I have ever tried. It has such flavor. I will try it with other than Pompano - I think any white fish would be great with this recipe. Read More
