Fish fillet with ginger & scallions


We never failed to order  this dish whenever we eat out for the simple reason that I've never maked this at home.  All the while I was under the impression that whipping up this dish is a challenge as I was afraid that the fish fillet will disintegrate upon being flipped by the 'spatula'.  I was pleasantly surprised that this was not the case when I finally attempted it. 

The tip lies in the way how the fish fillet is sliced.  After deboning the fish, the fillet is long (according to the length of the fish), then cut it to say 2.1/2 inches portions.  Then slice the portions against the grain of the fillet.  This way the fillet will not be crumbly ........ and it worked!







This plate of fish fillet will go down well with a bowl of piping hot white rice ....................

Ingredients
  • 250 gm fish fillet block, sliced
  • 10 gm young ginger, sliced
  • 2 stalks scallions, cut to 1.1/2 inch lengths
  • 1/4  cup water
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp light soya sauce
  • 2 tsps Shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2  tsp cornflour + 1 Tbsp water to thicken
  • Oil for frying
Seasoning for fish fillet
1/2  tsp sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp cornflour, a dash of pepper.

Preparation
  1. Season the sliced fish fillet with salt, sugar, cornflour  and pepper, set aside.
  2. Heat up some oil in a pan, add in the fish fillet, stir-fry.  Dish out.
  3. Saute the ginger with the remaining oil till fragrant, add in the water, sugar,  oyster and light soya sauce.  Once boiling, return the fish fillet to the pan.
  4. Add in the scallions, give it a quick stir.  Test for taste and add in the cornflour mixture. 
  5. Turn off heat and drizzle in the Shaoxing wine, dish out to serving plate.
  6. Serve hot with rice.

  7. Thanks for the tip Cheah. My fish always disintegrate each time I tried to stir-fry it this way. I guess I cut it wrongly :)

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
