Asian Glazed Black Drum

Black drum 5-7 oz filets, 4 each

1 lb squash, sliced

Red onion, julienned 1 each
½ lb Shiitake mushrooms, sliced

2 tsp Jay D’s Sweet and Spicy BBQ Rub (Red Stick Spice Co.)

Preheat a non-stick skillet on medium high heat. Season each filet with ½ tsp of Jay D's Sweet & Spicy BBQ Rub. Place filet in the skillet and sear for 2 to 3 minutes until the fish is  of the way cooked. Flip fish and finish cooking. Remove fish from skillet and return pan to stove. Place sesame oil in the skillet, and once it starts to smoke, add red onions and squash. Don’t move vegetables for 1 to 2 minutes to allow them to brown. Add the mushrooms to the pan and sauté them for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
