Well Christmas is over and we are looking forward to the New Year. Have you made any resolutions or like me, you’re just looking forward to even more better things in 2016 than this year had to offer? Hope you made something lovely during the Christmas holidays that left your loved ones looking forward to the New Year celebrations? For the New Year, we’ll be having something light because I know most of us have already written the words “To lose 5lbs before March”. Today we’ll be preparing something I’ve tagged a New Year delight: Whole fish with Sweet and Sour Vegetables. So whip out your utensils and let’s prepare our last meal for the year.
Here’s t making sure you end the year in style!
Cooking time: 25 minutes
1kg fish, scaled and cleaned
1 tbsp shredded fresh ginger
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
3 sliced onions
1 thinly sliced carrot
1 thinly sliced red bell pepper
3 tbsps light soy sauce
3 tbsps oyster sauce
2 tbsps sugar
3 tbsps vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tsps cornflour
Score the fish flesh, with 3 – 4 diagonal slits on both sides.
Season with salt and also rub salt into the slits.
Grill for four minutes on each side.
While the fish is on the grill, heat up a wok adding a little oil, ginger, chilli and vegetables, tossing over the high heat for 2 – 3 minutes.
Add the soy and oyster sauces, sugar, vinegar and sesame oil and bring to boil.
In a bowl, mix cornflour with cold water until it becomes a smooth paste, add it to the pan until the sauce thickens.
Put fish on a platter and pour the sauce on it. Enjoy with rice or potatoes.
Have a great 2016!!!
