Soy Sauce Braised Fish Recipe

A simple soy sauce braised fish was what I cooked last week during one of my lazy day. Nothing fancy, but good enough to eat it with a bowl of rice especially the sauce.

Thinking about it makes me salivating again.

In this recipe, I used mostly Japanese ingredients. So if you do not have the Japanese ingredients feel free to replace it with any similar ingredients that are available in your pantry.

STEPS


1. Wash and pat dry the fish with a paper towel. Then season it with salt and pepper for about 15 minutes.

*I used tarakihi fish in this recipe. Feel free to use any fish of your choice.

2. Lightly coat the fish with plain flour.

3. Shallow fry the fish until golden brown.

*If you are not into frying, you can steam the fish for about 10 minutes.



4. Slice the chillies into half and remove its seeds.

5. Finely slice the ginger.

6. Heat up a pan with some cooking oil. Then add in sake, mirin, water, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce and rock sugar. Bring it to boil.

*You can substitute the sake with shao xing wine and omit the mirin.
*If you do not want to use rock sugar, you can use any other types of sugar of your choice.

7. Once it has come to a boil, add in sliced chillies and ginger. Continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or until all the rock sugar has dissolved.
