My family loves zucchini, also known as courgette. I always fry it with eggs which is my family favourite. But I thought it’s time for a change. I bought a packet of frozen cod which I thought of steaming it for dinner but then no one was at home to eat. Everyone had something on. Not knowing what to do, I just added more salt to it and kept in the fridge. 2 days later, I took it out to fry. Wow…it was so salty. I thought….this could be just nice for any dish topping. True enough it was really good as a topping for fried zucchini and congee. My family liked it very much.
This is a very simple, easy and quick dish if you have the fried, salted fish ready. Here’s my recipe to share:
Defrost the cod if it is frozen. Add enough salt and keep in the fridge for 2 days. Coat it with some corn flour and then pan fry it until it is golden on both sides. Dish it up.
You can use one small piece or all to make this fish topping. I love garlic so I used half a while garlic for 1 piece of the salted cod. Mash up the cod with a fork. Heat up some oil in the frying pan. Add the cod and the garlic and fry until golden and fragrant. Dish it up.
fried garlic oil
light soya sauce
Wash and slice the zucchini into strips. Heat up some fried garlic oil in the frying pan. Add the zucchini. Keep stirring until it’s cooked. Do not add water. Sprinkle some light soya sauce, not too much, as the salted fish is already salty. Stir to mix well and dish up onto a plate. Sprinkle the fish on top and serve hot. It goes very well with rice or even noodles.
