Pan-Seared Yellow Eye Rockfish Infused with Hibiscus Tea and Tamarind

Pan-Seared Yellow Eye Rockfish Infused with Hibiscus Tea and Tamarind

Another small portion of the Alaskan Yellow Eye rockfish was in the freezer, caught by the other adult last summer.

For over half a dozen years now, I have been savoring hibiscus tea made with dried hibiscus flowers as my beverage of choice for a relaxing evening. I've used the thick steeped hibiscus tea for home-dyeing of small fabric projects with the kids.

While making the thick gravy-ish sauce/topping for the pan-seared yellow eye, I decided to incorporate some of the lovely flavor (and color!) of the hibiscus tea that I had steeping handily in the tea pot.

Some fresh baby kale leaves and arugula leaves from the home-garden was rubbed with a hint of olive oil and sprinkled with a dash of lime juice to make a quick side salad.

½ onion, diced
6-8 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 large tomato, chopped

½ cup thick rich hibiscus tea
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper powder
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon tamarind paste
salt to taste

2 Tablespoons olive oil

fairly thin fish fillets, thawed and ready to cook

  1. Grind the onions, garlic, and tomato to a coarse paste
  2. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil, add the paste, some salt, and saute
  3. Add some hibiscus tea and saute some more till the gravy is rich and aromatic
  4. Rub the fish fillets with salt, cayenne pepper, and tamarind paste
  5. In another pan, heat another tablespoon of oil and add the fish fillets
  6. Flip when bottom side is golden brown, and a dash of balsamic vinegar and hibiscus tea
  7. Cook till fish is done
