I have experimented at various high end restaurants here. Well, I do like Italian and French food, but my restaurant experiences are not memorable enough (I am not complaining, its just my opinion). Oh yeah, the ambiance is pleasant and the food is just fine. But not so memorable enough! I don’t know why? Well…its not that I am missing the spicy food, nor trying to relate to my homeland food! Am I missing true friends and family here?? Not sure, but something is really missing, when I dine here!!!
Fish fillets 4-6, (I used Tilapia here, no other choice)
MSG 1/4 Spoon
Dry red chili flakes 1/4 spoon
Soy sauce thick 2 spoons
Chinese 5 spice powder 1/4 spoon
Food color- red (optional)
Oil for shallow frying.
Sesame oil few spoons
Ginger 1″ chopped
Garlic 4 chopped
Shallots 1 finely chopped(optional)
Green onions chopped 1 cup to garnish.
Marinate fish cubes, using salt, MSG, soy sauce, ginger-garlic paste, 5-spice powder and chili flakes. Set aside.
Heat oil in a wide wok. Fry the fish till reddish brown.
In a wide skillet, add few spoons of oil. Add chopped garnishing items and followed by fried fish…add soy + tomato sauce. Fry real good for few minutes and remove from heat.
Enjoy with fried rice or noodles.
