Went to my favorite Asian supermarket last weekend and got these wonderful fresh basa fish fillets, I always thought it’s a type of flounder, but after doing some research I realized basa is a type of catfish, the strange thing is I find most catfish hard to swallow, the taste and smell is just too “fishy” to me, but basa is so mild, it almost taste like very tender pork!
1 lb basa fish fillet (cut into pieces and marinate with 1/2 tablespoon corn starch, 1 tablespoon of rice wine)
2 tablespoon black bean garlic sauce
1 small onion (cut into bite size)
2 stalk scallions (slices in an angle)
5 slices fresh ginger
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
- Heat up the wok and add in some cooking oil.
- Add sliced ginger and onions, stir fry them until aromatic.
- Add in the fish and do a quick stir.
- Add the black bean garlic sauce, fish sauce, sugar, and sesame oil and stir fry until the fish is cooked.
- Toss in the chopped scallion and do a quick stir, dish up and serve hot.
