Fish dishes are generally quick and easy to prepare. They are perfect when you are short on time but need a satisfying and healthy dish for your meal.
Take this delightfully simple ginger and scallion pan-fried fish fillet recipe, for example. The prep work usually takes around 10-15 minutes, while the cooking time should be under 5 minutes, meaning it should only take about 15-20 minutes from start to finish. That is pretty fast for such a delicious dish.
Ingredients for this fish dish
We will need fish fillet, cornstarch, Shaoxing wine, ginger, scallions, chicken stock/water, light soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, ground white pepper, and sesame oil.
You can use any white fish with firm flesh. I am using swai/dory fillet in the photos, but I have prepared this dish with sole, flounder, halibut, red snapper, tilapia, and grouper. I usually choose the freshest available white fish when I do my shopping.
Step-by-step to cooking this fish dish
First, combine fish fillets with cornstarch and Shaoxing wine. Set aside.
Next, prepare the sauce by mixing chicken stock/water, light soy sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, cornstarch/tapioca starch, and ground white pepper. Set aside.
Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Sauté ginger and scallions until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Reserve some scallions for garnish.
Add fish fillets and sauté until cooked halfway, about 30 seconds. Pour in the sauce and continue cooking until fish is fully cooked, about 1 minute.
Turn off the heat. Toss in reserved scallions and sesame oil, mix well. Transfer to a serving plate and serve immediately.
