Lapu Lapu with Green Peppercorns

3.0

The lapu lapu was quite interesting.  The green peppercorns – which are simply unripe black peppercorns – provided a distinct herbaceous/tangy flavor to the sauce, further accentuated by the sharpness of the minced scallions, elevating the otherwise mild flavor of the fish.  Not sure if I’d ever order it again, but I enjoyed the dish this once for its novelty.  Also very nice visually, good for entertaining guests.

Like the Japanese dish (see for example 7.207 Kyuri Asazuka), but with more kick.
