  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.

Quick, easy & tasted fab. Added noodles to the chilli, garlic & ginger which really complimented the dish. Loved by adults and children alike. Definitely will be a family favourite going forward. Looked really impressive on the plate so great for entertaining too!

Delicious! Served it with plain rice and steamed sugar snap peas and probably more soy sauce than was good for me. The children liked most of it... they ate it, anyway!
