Hot and Sour Fish with Stir-Fried Veg Noodles

Hot and Sour Fish with Stir-Fried Veg Noodles

Here you go something to warm and tangy – a definite break from the norm. This takes 15 mins max to make and tastes fucking wicked. I had to go back for more (would you believe).

Hot and Sour Fish
2 large filets of white fish (Tilapia, River Cobbler are good and cheap)
Groundnut oil
2 teasp Chilli bean Sauce (or Nandos/hot sauce)
1 tbsp Tomato Puree
2 teasp Chinese Rice Vinegar (or normal stuff you put on your chips)
2 tbsp Sweet Sherry (or Chinese rice wine if you're posh)
4 tbsp Soy
Sesame Oil
300ml Chicken Stock
Salt & Pepper
Corn Flour
Sir fried Veg Noodles
Pack of Medium Noodles
Spring Onions (shredded)
Mushrooms (chopped)
Broccoli (chopped into small trees)
Garlic (chopped)
Sesame Oil
Sweet Sherry (or Chinese rice wine)
In a low wide pan, put: Chilli bean Sauce, Tomato Puree, Chinese Rice Vinegar, Sweet Sherry, Soy, Chicken Stock, Salt & Pepper and heat slowly.
Chop the fish filets in half and then coat with Corn flour + Salt & Pepper.
In a medium sized pan boil some water, then cook broccoli trees for 5 mins. Remove and then using the same water, cook the noodles for 4 mins. Remove noodles. Chuck water.
In a wok heat a decent amount of groundnut oil (150ml).
Fry the fish for 3mins each side. 
Then remove and place fish on kitchen roll to dry.
Empty wok of 99% of the oil. 
Add Sesame oil. Heat for a min.
Add Spring Onions, Garlic, Mushrooms, Broccoli, Noodles and stir fry for 4 mins.
Add splash more Sesame oil and Soy sauce and give it another min.
Place fish pieces in pan with sauce. Heat gently, covering the fish with sauce.
Dish up veg+noodles,  putting a couple of pieces of fish ontop and then some sauce… 
Done and dusted.
All amounts are for guide only and should be added according to taste. I used more chilli and sesame…
