In this Fish Fillet recipe, we’ll be using “Tausi” or Chinese Black Beans. Tausi is directly associated with the oriental or Chinese cuisine and is known to provide extra amounts of saltiness to the food. Once more, I prepared the dish as I was inspired by Chowking Restaurant here in one of our visits just recently. You can prepare the ingredients and try the simplified cooking procedure below:
- 1 lb fish fillet (tilapia, red snapper, hammour or tuna)
- 4 tbsp chinese black beans (tausi)
- 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
- 1 medium sized white onion, chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1 pc egg, beaten
- 1 cup Cornstarch
- 1 cup cooking oil
- a pinch of ground pepper & msg. to taste
- Put some breading on the fish by dipping it on the beaten egg mixture.
- Place the cornstarch in a clear plastic bag and put-in the fish. Close the container(be sure that there is some air inside) and shake until the cornstarch is evenly distributed on the fish. (Do step 1 & 2 twice or thrice)
- Fry the fish and set aside
- On a separate pan, sauté the onion and put-in the chinese black beans
- Add the green onion and simmer for a minute.
- Add water and let boil
- Put-in the fried fish fillet and simmer for 5 minutes or until sauce sauce is almost absorbed by the fish
- Add msg. and pepper to taste
- Serve hot. Share and Enjoy!
