Best Pan Seared Fish in PJ

Written by Updated ago

Searing is a technique that cherishes the finest taste of a fish, with a desired gilded-brown crust and fillet that retains the natural flavours, it’s immaculate. It might appear simple and straightforward as it requires only 8 to 10 minutes getting it done, therefore, we gave a go at our kitchen and the fish got dead the second time. Adept searing skills and delicious consorts are required to enjoy a quintessential pan-seared fillet. We have gone fishing for the best in Petaling Jaya; follow our trail that guarantees zero disappointments.

Fillet of your choice, often ordered are cod or salmon, comes with a resoundingly crispy skin and flesh that falls apart with a gentle touch. Consorts of sautéed potatoes and greens complete the platter. Variations like Teriyaki Salmon and Black Cod Assam Pedas are praiseworthy too.

    Genji Japanese RestaurantPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Spanning close to three decades, this Japanese restaurant has been stacking up reputations as one of the finest places to quell your Japanese cuisine cravings. Housed in Hilton Hotel, the atmosphere is brightly-lid and commodious with modern touches. Among the mainstay on the menu is their signature Cod Teriyaki. The thick and fresh fish is pan-seared to perfection then enrobed with condensed Teriyaki sauce, giving it a glistening visual threat. The sauce has ideal symmetry of sweet and savoury, complementing the flaky fish which sits on a bed of mashed radish, Nameko mushroom and spinach puree. If you want something a little lighter, their seared tuna with Japanese mustard, miso and vinegar sauce could be the best fit.

    The Apartment

    The Apartment is a bar and restaurant that reminds you of the apartment. Sounds quirky, but it’s absolutely fun as you can dine in the bedroom, library, shower and hall that are tarted up with sleek and stylish furnishings making you in open-mouthed wonder. How about delicately pan-seared cod sprinkled with crispy almonds, lounging in a colourful concoction of ripe tomatoes and white buttered clams, now that dish should be Michelin-rated. Each wholesome bite kicks in zesty and tangy punch. Justifies the number of awards they have bagged in recent years.

    Bistro a Table is an epicure’s dream with interiors that spell class and comfort while mouthwatering delicacies that are a true sensory delight. If fish is your pick, their pan-seared line-caught Barramundi with summer vegetables and a mound of mashed potatoes gives you all reason to be buoyant. The skin is courteously crisped and the fish just falls apart into flakes. If miraculously you still have space in your tummy, never miss their range of desserts.

    Kampachi by EquatorialPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    This famed and fabled Japanese restaurant has taken pan-seared fish into a whole new level, somewhat crafted for the brave hearts. In French cuisine, foie gras signifies luxury, whereas, in Japanese gastronomy, it’s Anger Fish Liver that tops the chart. Despite being the liver, the presentation rather makes it more alluring. The liver is seared to perfection, slithering the little islets are divine and the simmered radish neutralizes any fishy taste. Small in size yet bombards with distinctive flavours.
