FRIED FISH WITH CRISPY GARLIC AND GINGER

Come October, my family will be on vegetarian diet again which we have been observing for decades.  It is also a time to clear my fridge of any non-vegetarian food ingredients. If you are keen to go on a vegetarian food fiesta, you may like to get some ideas from here
Anyway, back here, this is a homey style of  cooking fish.  It is  served with a fragrant sauce with lots of fried crispy ginger and garlic and shredded spring onions and chilli curls.  The sauce is aromatic, tasty and easy to concoct.  Got this very fresh fish at the wet market for RM8.00.
A nice fish dish to serve with steaming hot rice or porridge.
Recipe adapted from chef Amy Beh’s cook show years ago.
Ingredients
1 whole fish – scaled and cleaned
Oil for deep or pan frying
2 tbsp each of chopped garlic and shredded ginger
1 stalk spring onions – shredded and soak in water to curl up
1 red chilli – seeded, shredded and soak in water to curl up
Sauce Ingredients [combined]
2 tbsp oyster sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
Dash of msg and sesame seed oil
4 tbsp water
  1. Make a few slits on both sides of the fish body.  Lightly coat with cornflour.
  2. Heat up wok with enough oil to fry shredded ginger and chopped garlic until crispy and golden brown.  Dish up and set aside.
  3. Using the same wok [make sure there is enough oil ], pan fry the fish on both sides until cooked and crispy.  Dish up onto serving platter.
  4. Bring sauce ingredients to boil, pour over fried dish.  Garnish with spring onions/chilli curls and crispy fried ginger and garlic.

EZCR#75 - MUA EU CHICKEN WITH ERYNGII MUSHROOMS

This is a good sesame oil flavoured chicken to try if you love to eat Mua Eu Kay [Sesame Oil Fried Chicken] but do not want to eat all chicken meat.  Just add a packet of eryngii mushrooms to only one chicken whole leg and there you have it.  You can also use this recipe to prepare Sesame Oil Chicken Rice [Mua Eu Kay Fun] to serve as a One Dish Meal.
The chicken and mushrooms are as tasty and delicious well coated with thick sesame flavor [if you use good quality sesame seed oil] and natural sweetness of the other ingredients.

Recipe inspired by and adapted from Chinese TV Cook Show - Cooking So Easy
Ingredients
1 chicken whole leg [with or without skin or bones] – cut bite size pieces
1 packet fresh Eryngii mushrooms [about 200gm] – sliced 1 cm thick
30 gm ginger – sliced
2-3 tbsp sesame seed oil
Seasoning
1 tbsp wine
¼-½ tsp salt
¼ tsp dark soy sauce
¼ tsp sugar
Some water
  1. Heat up a non-stick wok, dry fry ginger slices until fragrant then add in the sesame oil.  Continue to fry until edges of the ginger slices are brown and aromatic.
  2. Add in the chicken and mushrooms, leave to cook until slightly brown and aromatic.  Add in seasoning, mix well then add in some water.  Bring to boil and leave to simmer until sauce is thick.
  3. Dish up to serve.
