Golden Braised Fish Recipe

Ingredients:

1 whole fish (2lb bass or snapper are suitable)

salt to taste

plain flour

5 Chinese dried mushrooms

5 spring onions

1 tsp finely chopped ginger

1.5 cups of water or fish stock

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp sherry

1 tsp salt

6 water chestnuts

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 clove star anise

1 tsp sugar

oil for frying

Method:

Clean the fish, leaving the head and tail. Dry using absorbent paper. Make 2 gashes on the thickest part on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and coat with flour. Soak the mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes, rinse, dry and remove stalks. Cut the mushrooms into strips and spring onions into 1/2 inch lengths. Slice the water chestnuts.

Heat up a little in a large frying pan and fry the fish on both sides until golden. Pour off excess oil and add the mushrooms, spring onions, ginger, stock, soy sauce, sherry, salt, water chestnuts, garlic, star anise and sugar. Cover the pan and bring to boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes, turning the fish once. Serve on a large plate with the sauce poured over.
