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.

This was really good - as confirmed by so many positive comments. Literally 10 minutes to make and so tasty - really good combination of flavours. Expected the chilli to overpower the delicate taste of the fish but wasn't really noticeable but combined with the ginger, garlic, spring onions and soy made a lovely tasty topping. My daughter loved it too and proclaimed it to taste 'authentic'! Will become a regular I am sure - easy, very quick and healthy too so perfect mid week choice.

Made this and served it with quinoa and green beans. It was SO good! Lovely crispy skin, but soft flesh and interesting + tasty flavours.

Made it for myself this time (halved the recipe), but will definitely make it again and for other people :)
