Today's lesson - Asian style pan fried fish fillet.
This dish is so simple - all you need is a couple of fresh ingredients which highlight the flavours of good a good quality fish fillet.
You'll need this:
1 x large fillet of firm fish (We used Red Emperor)
1 x large knob of butter
1 x red chilli, finely chopped
2 x cloves of garlic, minced
1 x large piece of ginger, minced
1 x bunch of coriander stalks, finely chopped
Salt and Pepper for seasoning
Light splash of Soy Sauce
Lemon, for serving
You'll need to do this:
Heat heavy based frying pan. Add butter and heat until melted. Add onion, garlic, chilli, coriander and fry for a couple of minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add fish and cook on first side for 4-5 minutes, making sure to cover in onion mixture. Then turn and fry on second side for another 4-5 minutes. Serve with a splash of soy sauce and a squeeze of lemon.
I will be the first to admit that I am a total novice when it comes to cooking fish and yes, I get a little daunted by cooking fish for anyone who I don't know too well! But it actually is super easy and well worth the pressure!
