This is deceptively simple for such a tasty recipe. Serve it as part of a Chinese banquet with white rice and side dishes, or just by itself for lunch or dinner.


Serves: 2 

  • 2 white fish fillets, cut into pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cornflour as needed
  • 2 tablespoon oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 spring onion, chopped

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:12min  ›  Ready in:32min 

  1. Pat dry the fish with kitchen towels, sprinkle with salt and pepper and let sit for 10 minutes, then lightly coat with cornflour.
  2. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Pan-fry the fish until no longer opaque, 3-5 minutes, depending on size of your fish pieces. Set the fish aside.
  3. Heat the same frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Fry the garlic until aromatic, 2-3 minutes. Add the onion and salt and cook until soft, 3-4 minutes. Mix in the water, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, vinegar and salt.
  4. Bring the mixture to the boil. Add the fish back into the pan and garnish with spring onions before serving.
