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)
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
300ml Chicken Stock
Salt & Pepper
Sir fried Veg Noodles
Pack of Medium Noodles
Spring Onions (shredded)
Broccoli (chopped into small trees)
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…
