Cooking Instructions Stir Fried Fish Fillet
In marinating your fish fillet, you can add a teaspoon of lime juice if desired. This somehow removes that salty taste from the fish. Coat the cornstarch and lime juice well while marinating the fish fillets.
To start your frying, heat a wok or a large skillet over medium high heat on your American stove. Once hot, add the cooking oil and wait till it starts to smoke or get hot enough.
Then add the sliced ginger root, the onions, the bell peppers, the dried chilies and fry them until they become aromatic. Remember we don’t use garlic in this fry recipe.
Once the aroma fills the kitchen, you can now add the fish fillet and constantly fry them. After a few seconds, about 20 to 30 seconds, you can add the black bean sauce, the fish sauce, the sugar, and the sesame oil and continue stir frying until the fish fillets are thoroughly cooked, but not over seared.
Finally add the cornstarch mixture and stir to thicken the sauce in the dish.
Toss in the chopped scallions on the dish and stir quickly to mix them together. Be careful not to ruin your fish fillets.
Serve them immediately while they are hot. Great to go with white steam cooked rice.
