Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For peanut sauce, in a blender container or food processor bowl combine the 1/2 cup peanuts, the 1/4 cup water, green onion pieces, sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, ginger, and garlic. Cover and blend or process until nearly smooth; pour into a small saucepan. Stir in the 2 or 3 tablespoons water; set aside.

  • Combine teriyaki sauce and the 1 tablespoon water. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of fish with the teriyaki mixture.

  • Grill fish on the lightly greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling.

  • Slowly warm peanut sauce over medium-low heat. (Sauce will thicken slightly as it is heated. If desired, stir in additional water.) Spoon sauce over fish. If desired, garnish with chopped peanuts and sliced green onion. Makes 4 servings.
