BANGSAMORO HALAL DISH
With Maria Fhebie Ortil
Sweet chili chicken is an easy recipe with crispy chicken and Thai sweet chili sauce. This chicken recipe is so good you will want to lick the plate! This is naturally a Halal recipe good for dinner especially in this time of Ramadan.
Fried fish with soy sauce–one of the simplest recipes for fried fish, but super delicious especially when you drench the ginger soy sauce with steamed white rice.
Growing up in Mindanao, fresh fish is abundant. There are all kinds of fish available in the wet market–big, small, tiny, deep-sea, or fresh water. I prefer smaller and tiny fish, deep-fried to crispy goodness that I can just eat the whole fish with bones. If you’ve tried those, you know how great they are.
Without any hesitation, I got a couple of them and made fried fish with soy sauce–one of the simplest recipes for fried fish, but super delicious especially as I said earlier when you drench the ginger soy sauce with steamed white rice.
If you are tired of plain old fried fish with salt, try the fried fish with soy sauce recipe.
1 lb. (600 g) fish
2 inch ginger, peeled, cut into thin strips
1 stalk scallion, cut into 2-inch length and then into thin strips
1 tbsp oil for deep frying
3 tablespoons soy sauc
4 tablespoons water
2 dashes white pepper powder
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoon sugar
Remove scales, gills, and clean the fish thoroughly. Pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce mixture and set aside
.Heat up a big wok with enough oil to deep fry the fish, or use a deep fryer. Deep fry the fish until golden brown and crispy. Transfer out to a serving plate.
In a wok, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil. When it’s hot, stir-fry the ginger strips until golden brown and transfer out. Using the same oil, add the soy sauce mixture until it boils. Pour the soy sauce over the fish and garnish with the fried ginger strips and scallions. Serve immediately with steamed white rice. MFO
