Best Pan-Seared Fish in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Fish is as divine as it creates conundrum on how to bring out the best taste while retaining its natural flavours. Simple, straightforward and subliminal, a pan-seared fillet is undeniably second to none. Juicy and decadent flesh locked beneath a flaky skin, further heightened with compelling consorts or savoury sauces. Tongue tingling with excitement yet vacillating where to go? Drop the worries and delve in any eateries in our crib sheet below.

    Previously located at Straits Quay, Five27 has now cavorted to the bustling Chulia Court, yet their delectable menu stays as it is. Eye-catching interiors greet your attention at first, terracotta tiles, nostalgic arts and lights and several dining segments, visually appealing and vividly bedecked. Fish lovers, opt for their Pan Seared Salmon. The delightfully cooked fish with crispy skin and tender flesh sits on orbits of honey and dill mustard sauce where planets of greens add a layer of crunch. Baby potatoes with balsamic caramelised onions accompany the platter. If Tuna is your pick, Japanese Tataki Tuna Salad would be great, pan seared fresh tuna covered with sesame seeds and served with mixed greens, boiled egg and ponzu sauce dressing.

    Macalister Mansion – Dining RoomPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    An haute dining experience like never before, the Dining Room at Macalister Mansion is widely known for their posh setting and scrumptious spread of meals. The menu changes every two months, yet the mainstay on the menu is their Pan Seared Miso Cod. Daintily dished up with an exemplary cod sitting in the middle of Braised Shimeji, Oliver Soil, and Watercress Coulis and topped with a dollop of caviar. The flaky and moist fish blends well with the earthy and rich condiments, definitely not a regular fare that you can imagine.

    May your senses and stomach be strong, as this comfy restaurant is dishing out innovatively inspiring dishes that are drop-dead delicious. Despite the name, it’s decent in size and the interior spells as a second home to patrons. Their Black and White Sesame Seared Tuna is not to be missed. Artistically presented with pleasantly seared tuna coated with sesame seed, laid on slivers of paper thin daikon radish, mayonnaise and sprinkle of orange zest and soy sauce to dip with. Moreover, few drops of jasmine flowers frame the four corners of the plate, charming your nostrils with natural whiffs while devouring the tuna.

    Louis Café

    Tucked tranquilly at Argyll Road, this humble eatery serves one of the best Pan Seared Salmon Steak in the island. The slab of fresh fillet has a crispy skin and juicy meat that soaks up the delicious Dijon sauce. Wallop of greens adds flavour and colour to the dish. Their Red Snapper with Cream of Tomato Pulp is another commendable dish for fish lovers.

    Among the most vaunted restaurants in Penang, Mizi Bistro serves hearty portions of Western fare that are easy on the wallet and joy to the palate. If fish is what your belly screams for, there are plenty of sauces and toppings to pamper your fillet, where Pan-seared Fish Fillet Polonaise tops the chart. The fresh snapper has a crackling skin and plump flesh, lounging in a pool of parsley butter sauce and liberally topped with chopped eggs and sides of blanched greens. The flavour combinations might sound a little quirky yet it’s sinfully satisfying. Other flavour profiles include teriyaki sauce as well as spicy and sweet “ulam” sauce.
