Just in case any of you didn't notice the recent 'Reader's recipe challenge' way back last autumn in the popular British women's magazine Prima, one of the runners-up was indeed moi !! I submitted it because it's my favourite dish to cook for the family and it's simple & healthy too.
Chinese-style pan-fried rainbow trout with root ginger and spring onions
1tbsp olive oil
3 spring onions, shredded
1 inch piece of root ginger, peeled and shredded
290g pack boneless rainbow trout fillets
dash of soya sauce
dash of sesame oil
What to do:
1. Heat a large frying pan and add olive oil. When hot toss in spring onions and ginger and fry gently for 1 min. stirring.
2. Add fish fillets to pan and cook on a moderately high heat for about 5 mins, tossing fish over to cook other side once it has turned a peach colour..
3. Now, splash over soy sauce and sesame oil. Serve alongside some boiled rice.
This sort of recipe is typical in my style of cooking, ie. I tend not to spend too long on it.
Root ginger and spring onions also feature quite commonly in Chinese cooking.
Other recipes I can do 'easily' are as follows:
Szechuan aubergines, Chicken fried rice (easy peasy), Chinese dumplings, stir fried broccoli, homemade potato/vegetable soup (my sister and son loves this) and chicken stew. So, readers feel free to send in any recipe requests for any of these meals via the comments form and I would love to share it with you.
