Sorry for the long wait as some human beings have been inquiring about the recipe for this. In reality, that is one of the dishes that my own family could have at the reunion desk every 12 months. A simple braised fish that’s made aromatic with spring onion and dark soya sauce. Plain as it may seem, however it tastes delicious because it’s a dish that’s being added down many years in the course of every reunion.
- 1 pomfret
- 5 stalks spring onion + more for garnishing, cut into sections
- 2 tbsp ginger, shredded
- 2 tbsp cooking oil
- For the Seasonings:

- 1½ dark soya sauce
- 2 tbsp Shaoxing wine

- 400ml water
- Make a few slits on both sides of the fish.
- Heat up 2 tbsp of cooking oil in a pan and pan-fried the fish on both sides until lightly browned.
- Add in the spring onion and shredded ginger.
- Add in the water and all the rest of the seasonings ingredients.
