Method

  1. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then slash the skin 3 times. Heat a heavy-based frying pan and add 1 tbsp oil. Once hot, fry the fish, skin-side down, for 5 mins or until the skin is very crisp and golden. The fish will be almost cooked through. Turn over, cook for another 30 secs-1 min, then transfer to a serving plate and keep warm. You’ll need to fry the fish in 2 batches.
  2. Heat the remaining oil, then fry the ginger, garlic and chillies for about 2 mins until golden. Take off the heat and toss in the spring onions. Splash the fish with a little soy sauce and spoon over the contents of the pan.

Very easy, very tasty. We actually had to use Salmon because that was all that was left on the fish counter on Valentines evening... but it worked beautifully.

I also threw some finely chopped lemon grass in and rather than removing the fish from the pan first just added the other ingredients a couple of minutes from the end so that the fish became more infused with the flavours.

Had with jasmine rice and stir fried sprouting broccoli. Yum.

Simple yet effective! Very tasty. I added the soy sauce to the pan with the spring onions rather than sprinkling over the fish. Served with soya beans and rice - great dinner!

If I can make a success of this dish it must be fool proof. My wife loved it so much I had to cook it when my son and partner came over. Try it, you will not be disappointed. Served on top of lightly cheesed potato. Bliss!

Made it for guests using bass caught by myself. First time effort and delighted with outcome. Served it with jasmine rice mixed with shallots and lemon juice. Sugar snap peas on the side. Very favourable comments from guests.

Tried this recipe and enjoyed very much, try hitting t.e.s.c.o just before the point they close the fish counter, and enjoy huge discounts = cheap bass/similar.
Go with your gut feelings on ratios for ginger, garlic and chilli.
But add a bit more chilli.
Thank.........and God speed.

Fabulous recipe. Tasty and SO easy.
Hubby loved it and my son (who doesn't like fish or ginger very much!) was amazed at how the flavours came together.
Note: Second time I made it, I added fine slices of sweet red peppers...delicious...try it!

had wholegrain rice with it, which I think added a little extra texture
