Delicious crisp ginger sauce fish

Delicious garlic pork and ginger fish

My family loves to eat fish, especially pomfret and salmon. The flesh of pomfret is very tender and lovely. It’s good whichever way you cook it. Very often I cooked it in sweet and sour sauce, curry or just sprinkle with some salt and spices and shallow fry it. But this time I thought I’ll try out something different. I still have some delicious garlic pork which I made the other day that I used to cook the baby leeks (click here for recipe). I think it would add great flavour to this dish together with the fried ginger strips. It did! It turned out really good. My family loved it very much. Here’s how I did it.

Ingredients A
1 pomfret (about 800g)
corn flour

Marinade the fish

Clean the pomfret. Make sure the gillsĀ  and the inside are removed and cleaned. Sprinkle with some salt and rub some corn flour on both sides of the fish. Deep fry the fish until browned and cooked on both sides. Dish it up onto a plate.

Ingredients B (sauce)
1C water
1t sugar
2T oyster sauce
1T soya sauce
1T wine
1T corn flour
1t sesame oil
1/4t pepper powder

Sauce for the fish

Mix everything together in a bowl.

Ingredients C (for topping)
garlic pork (sliced)
ginger strips
fried shallot oil
spring onions (sliced)

Heat up some oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic pork. Oh…the smell is so good. Dish it up. Then add in the ginger strips and fry until crisp. Dish it up. The oil left behind is full of flavour. Pour the sauce in and stir until it boils. Pour over the fish. Top it with ginger strip, crisp garlic pork , spring onions and a drizzle of fried shallot oil. Serve hot with rice. This is just so lovely with plain rice.

@ the traditional gourmand - Thanks lots for your compliment! Putting together a cookbook? Wow….looks like a big dream for me. I love to dream big but I think right now I better concentrate on this present dream of trying out my recipes and building my blog. Let’s hope ONE FINE DAY…..hehe

LOVE IT ! LOVE IT ! LOVE ! Love pomfret espeacially the black ones, unfortunately I can only get the white ones. This reminds me of wholesome home cooking that I grew up with , both my thai and manchurian grandmothers used the pairing of pork and fish . I’ll make this next week, do u mind I link it to your blog?

Tangled Noodle  on October 22nd, 2009

This looks delicious! I’d love to try pomfret but I haven’t seen it often around here - so salmon it is. My favorites are the more tender ones like snapper but really, I’ll eat almost any kind fish, especially if they’re as tasty-looking as this! 8-)

Mary  on October 22nd, 2009

@3hungrytummies - Thanks for sharing. Lovely to know that your grandmas are Thai and Manchurian. I guess you know a lot about Thai and Manchurian cuisines then….would be really lovely. Very happy to know you will try out this recipe. Of course you can link to my blog….you are most welcome to do so.

@Tangled Noodle - Thanks for sharing. Wow….I can see that you are a real fan of fish. I only eat certain types of fish….not every type, especially not those with a lot of small bones. Hope you try out this one soon and let me know how you like it.

Two kinds of meat? Why are you torturing me four days into my compulsory vegetarian week?? ;) Seriously, this looks very tasty.

Drick  on October 22nd, 2009

awesome fish recipe….bet the flavors were unbelievable…

Mary  on October 22nd, 2009

@Rebecca - Thanks for your compliment. Hope you try out this dish soon for your hubby. The way to a man’s heart is through the stomache….hehe.

@The Chickenless Chick - LOL….what a thrill! Don’t worry, you won’t suffer tomorrow…..will be vegetarian….for you.. :o)

@Drick - Yes, the flavour was very good. Imagine the fried ginger and the garlic belly pork together? It’s fabulous. I have to cook again.

I miss this! Mum cooks this back home. Homesick now :(

Michael Chin  on October 23rd, 2009

Hi Mary, I normally prefer fried or BBQ fish, but your ginger fish does look so good that it makes my mouth water ! May be I should try your ginger fish one day soon.

Mary  on October 23rd, 2009

@Penny - Oh no….sorry to make you homesick. Well, guess it’s time to cook what your mom cooks. That’s what I’m doing here. I’m glad I have finally learned….hehe

@Michael - BBQ fish? That sounds so delicious. I would love to try that, maybe with a lot of spices. Hope you try this dish soon. Lovely to know you are trying to cook more dishes.

Divina  on October 23rd, 2009

That’s strange, I thought I made a comment already. This fish is really awesome. You have the crispy pork and the ginger and of course the wonderful sauce. I remembered a dish from dad although not the same. He deep-fries the fish heads and tofu and braised them in a black bean sauce and then garnish with onions. :)

Mary  on October 24th, 2009

@Divina - LOL….time must have passed too fast for you. Always appreciate your comment very much.That dish your dad cooks sounds so delicious. I hope to try one day. I have not used black beans in my cooking yet. Hope to learn soon.

kristy  on October 24th, 2009

Mary, you’ve been making a lot of home cook recipes lately. Making everyone started home sick lol! ha ha…. I guess you also home sick, are you?

Mary  on October 24th, 2009

@Kristy - It sure sounds like I’m cooking a lot everyday….you are right to say that. That shows how home sick I am….miss all the lovely food back home. I hope my blog is helping someone in my same situation…thinking of all the delicious Asian food all the time….LOL. My gosh….I drool when I look at all those delicious food on your blog…mmm
