Basa Fillet with Garlic Sauce/鱼香龙利鱼


This is a super easy dish, it will only take you 10 minutes from preparing to finish cooking. It is a must try yummy dish!!!!!

Basa fillet 1 pound/one whole piece

White rice vinegar 1/4 cup

Water ¼ cup

Balsamic vinegar ¼ cup

Sugar ¼ cup

Pinch of salt

Pinch of white pepper

1 tbsp of light soy sauce

Bring a big pot of water to boil, add in 2 slices of ginger and 2tsp of salt, turn the heat to medium, then cook the fish in the boiling water for about 7 minutes or until it is done. Place the fish in a long plate.

In another small pot, except white pepper and salt add in the rest ingredients and bring to bubbling, turn the heat to low and continue to cook for a minute or so, add 2 tbsp. of sweet potato starch water to thicken the sauce. Dust some white pepper and pinch of salt to the fish then pour the sauce over the fish.

So far this is the easiest fish dish I’ve ever cooked. It is easy but it tastes super delicious. Make sure you don’t overcook the fish. Turn the heat low when the sauce start to bubble otherwise all the sourness will evaporate. The original recipe doesn’t have water, I’ve tried it myself, and it is a bit too sour for me. If you don’t have Italy balsamic vinegar, you can use just regular Chinese Balsamic vinegar, after all this is a Chinese dish.

龙利魚柳 1 磅 / 一整条
