Ginger Chili Fish Fillets recipe


  • 300 grams white fish fillet, cut into 2-inch portions
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided
  • 1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 green finger chili, sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped lemongrass
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce, separated
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese black vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 400 grams bokchoy, leaves separated
  • 1-2 tablespoons sliced spring onion/green onion, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

Mix cornstarch and salt in a medium bowl. Add fish and toss to coat. Shake of the excess.

Mix 1 tablespoon soy sauce, fish sauce, sesame oil, black vinegar, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Heat half the oil in a wok on high. When hot, stir-fry ginger and chili for 1-2 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.

In the same wok heat the rest of the oil. Fry fish for about 2 minutes on each side.

Add ginger/chili mixture and the soy sauce mixture. Let this bubble for a few seconds then toss until the fish is coated on all sides. Remove from the wok and set aside.

In the same wok add the bokchoy with the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce. Cover and let cook for about 30 seconds. Uncover, toss, cover and cook for another 30 seconds, then take off the heat. You want the bokchoy to be just cooked.

Arrange the bokchoy on a serving plate. Lay the fish on top of the vegetables. Top with a sprinkling of green onion.
Serves two.
