How to Make Saucy Fish With Egg Fried Rice

by Charmaine T

Just sharing and trying new recipe with fellow snapguiders :)

Supplies

  • 2 Cod fillet
  • 5 Garlic cloves
  • Cooked rice (dry preferred)
  • Optional gravy sauce
  • 1 Egg
  • Corn flour
  • Salt, pepper, chili flakes
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Found cod fillet on promotion so bought it and decided to try something new today :) it is skinless and boneless, and was on half price!

    Step 2

    Cut it into pieces. Not too small so you can taste the chunky texture. I cut it with kitchen scissors. Sprinkle with salt and pepper for marination

    Step 3

    Sprinkle on some corn flour to coat

    Step 4

    Rub gently with hands

    Step 5

    Cut some garlic

    Step 6

    To fry fish, heat pan with oil

    Step 7

    On medium high heat

    Step 8

    Arrange fillets when oil is hot

    Step 9

    Let them cook. Only flip when you are convinced one side is cooked. You know it's cooked when the colour turns from transparent to white.

    Step 10

    Put the pan in the grill to keep warm. I put the grill on 5 because i'm leaving the 'grill cover' opened. Do make sure it does not burn the food or the pan handle and most important yourself!

    Step 11

    I'm making fish to go with egg fried rice

    Step 12

    Learned from snapguider JasmineFoo, i cracked an egg on the rice. Mix the egg with the rice with a spoon. Keep aside.

    Step 13

    Using another pan heat with oil

    Step 14

    Brown garlic

    Step 15

    When garlic is fragrant, put the rice in egg mixture into the pan. Add on salt, pepper and chili. Mix and fry until the egg is cooked. I prefer frying rice in high heat

    Step 16

    Keep mixing in high heat until egg mixture is cooked and dried up then reduce heat and keep frying until the rice reaches consistency that you like. I like dry as eating with gravy.

    Step 17

    The gravy and flavour is completely optional and depends on your liking. I'm mixing both of them - szechuan tomato and black bean sauce . Be creative ;)

    Step 18

    Two spoonful of each gravy onto the fillet pan back on stove. I did remove some of the fried garlic into the fish pan before making egg fried rice

    Step 19

    Add two spoonful of water

    Step 20

    Mix them gently without breaking the fish and let them simmer. You know it's done when gravy thickens! Feel free to add more seasoning like salt.

    Step 21

    Enjoy!
