Nic's Sticky Quillback

Nic's Sticky Quillback Recipe

We found a version of this recipe a few years back in an old Alaskan cookbook purchased at a garage sale in Sitka. Adapted and refined by our very own Nic Mink, it’s become one of our favorite recipes here at Sitka Salmon Shares!

Prep time: 10 min
Total time: 30 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 1 pound quillback fillets, cut in half
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
  • ½ cup green onions (or chives), chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 squeeze of lemon juice (about 1 teaspoon)
  • 1 cup flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Season

Season liberally with salt and pepper.

Cook Fish

Heat 3 Tbsp butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge quillback in flour, then sauté in pan until nicely browned, flipping halfway through cooking (about 4 minutes each side). Remove fish and place onto a paper towel to drain. 

Make the sticky

Add remaining butter to another skillet and heat over medium. Once hot, add ginger and sauté for about 1 minute. Add honey, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Bring to simmer and reduce by half. This will take 2-4 minutes depending on heat of pan.

Sauce + Serve

Add quillback to pan with reduced sauce. Coat fish completely in sauce. Add green onions. Serve over white rice. Pour any extra sauce over fish.
