Stir-fried Lemongrass Tilapia fish

Never cook river fish before, and this was my 1st time ( sorry ya, it seemed I have so many 1st time dish, hehehe). This Tilapia fish was given by my elder sister who bought this fish from her husband's hometown (Ulu Yam), you can find big and fresh river fish here. Since the lemongrass in my garden has grown so many, so I use lemongrass to cook this Tilapia fish as to get rid of fishy smell..


Simple recipe to share

1 Tilapia fish (cut out fish meat, marinate with chopped lemongrass, tumeric powder, salt, light soy sauce, sugar)

5-6 stalks of lemongrass, crushed

spring onion, cut into long strips

fresh red chili, shredded

ginger (little), chopped finely

garlic (more), cut slices

Seasoning- salt, fish sauce, lime juices

Steps:-

1. Deep fry the marinated Tilapia fish meat and set aside.

2. Heat oil in a wok, saute garlic slices till golden brown and set aside.

3. Use the remaining oil, saute ginger, add in lemongrass, spring onion and red chili.

4. Add in the fried fish and fried garlic slices, tasted with salt and fish sauce, add few drops of lime juices, quickly mix well and dish out.

5. Serve hot

Do enjoy cooking !!!

Great idea! I love the fragrant of lemon grass too. How nice just be able to cut some from your yard and use. I have to use frozen one here. :(

Lemongrass不必切很小塊,味道一樣會沁入菜餚中嗎?我一直認為要切得很小很細呢!

哇!我最喜欢吃鱼!看看如果明天去巴刹有新鲜的鱼,我也买来煮煮看!

Sonia said...

mimid3vils, me too, earlier I scared to eat river fish too, anyway, you can replace with sea fish..

Cheryl, you must add tumeric, then only got ASEAN style..

Felvinc, ya, you can use fresh sea fish to cook this as well, I think it will taste even better..

Never tried cooking river fish?! I find that fact interesting. I thought freshwater fish is easier to come by in Malaysia than sea fish, no?

Whatever it is, I doubt you will have any problem cooking anything.
