This is my ds's B favourite kind of fish. The Selar fish can be quite meaty but it has small bones so it takes quite a bit of patience to eat this kind of fish. I'm always very cautious when eating this kind of fish.
Here's sharing with you how I usually cook this fish.
800 gms Selar fish (processed at the supermarket)
4 nos. ginger slices
Marinade fish with ..... (for about an hour)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp chinese wine
1 tsp salt
a dash of pepper
1 tbsp shrimp paste powder
1 tbsp corn flour
Heat up about 8 tbsps of oil in a shallow frying pan.
Add in the ginger slices when oil is hot.
Add in the marinaded fish and pan fry till the sides are golden brown and the top slits of the fish whitened.
Turn the fish over and pan-fry the other side.
Dish up and garnish to serve.
