They are not listed in any particular preference, so take time to feast through them !
Loved a good steamed fish anytime and this one with Salted Soy Beans is a traditional Chinese favourite in many Asian households.
This salt and pepper fish is a easy deep-fried which taste absolutely delicious even after it has cooled down. The batter is just right for the fish coating and paired with tender barramundi slices, it made this dish all the way more tantalising.
May not looked good in presentation but the fried ginger shreds and dark soya combination matches up to a succulent and tasty Chinese homecooked that pairs up ideally with some plain porridge or our so-called Teochew Mui.
Prepped this as a festive fish because of the brilliant outlook of it. Carrots, mushrooms and turnips with fish slices make a simple yet yummy-licious dish which can be enjoyed as an everyday dish too as if with all steamed dishes.
You can never go wrong with a whole Pomfret Fish steamed whether it is the traditional Teochew way, or one that encompasses only your favourite ingredients.
If you dislike bittergourd on its own liked me, this dish probably will change your mind. Cooking it with the fish in black bean sauce totally overrule the bitter-ness of the vegetable itself.
You can never go wrong with this homely staple with spring onion and ginger. Always an all-time favourite too from the local Zhi Char or Mixed vegetables rice stall anytime.
Such a penchant for cod fish anytime. The meat is so succulent and tender that any form of cooking goes well with it, and more especially so when it is in a thick groovy oyster sauce.
Traditional way of braising the fish in fermented black beans is this country style dish that uses pomfret fish. Has a good savouriness that probably will keep you wanting for more.
Replace the “root” and you get a beer battered Fish and Chips ! But else, all things remain the same. No one drinks in the family so ya, root beer is made kids-friendly then !
Maybe not the most authentic Sweet and Sour Fish recipe there since sweet and sour sauce can be readily purchased all over the place. But nothing beats making one from scratch.
12. Assam Curry Fish
Wanted to include 10 favourites here only but there are simply too many to include. So let’s make it a dozen with this. Sourish, tangy and savoury Assam Curry Fish with batang fish instead of fish head makes everything much easier to enjoy anytime.
