Fried Grouper with Vegetables

Regular customer uses this recipe to cook these fishes Chinese restaurant-style - Pearl Grouper Super-Size or Pearl Grouper Extra-Large:

Wash the fish steak and mix with a little salt, egg white and cornstarch.

Cut the carrot into thin slices and cut each mushroom into two or three pieces.

Fry the fish pieces until lightly golden; scoop out and drain. Pour off the excess oil leaving about 2 tablespoons in the wok.

Stir-fry the ginger root, onions, greens, mushrooms and carrot. Add salt, blend well. Now add the fish pieces with soy sauce, rice wine or sherry and sugar.

Stir gently for 3 minutes, then thicken the gravy with cornstarch mixed with a little water.

Finally add sesame seed oil and serve while still hot.

I would like to share my simple recipe for cooking the Grouper. Do not wash the fish as it has already been cleaned, scaled and gutted before delivery.

Washing will remove the natural taste of the fish. Rub a bit of salt on both sides of the fish and steam it for 15 minutes.

After the fish has been steamed, place some spring onion and sliced ginger stripes on top of the fish and pour a small amount of hot cooking oil onto it.

Add a dash of soy sauce and its ready to serve. Do not throw away the simple fish gravy, as it is equally nutritious and delicious!
