Asian Flair Fish - Black Drum

Developed by Chef Jay Ducote

Chef Jay Ducote developed this Asian Flair Fish recipe with fresh-caught Black Drum, straight from the waters of Louisiana.


  • 4-5 lbs black drum filets, cut into serving-size portions
  • 2 limes, divided
  • 1 jalapeno, small diced
  • 1 knuckle fresh ginger, grated
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped, divided
  • 2 tablespoons Hoisin Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Fish Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, add juice from one lime, jalapeno, ginger, garlic, half the cilantro, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, and soy sauce. Whisk to combine. 
  2. Pour mixture over fish in a zip-top bag, seal, and place in the refrigerator for at least half an hour. 
  3. Remove the fish filets from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Sear the fish on the cast iron for a few minutes per side, until the fish is cooked through. Serve hot, garnished with lime juice and cilantro.
