Steamed Fish with Stir Fried Veggies


Hello everyone, it's been a long time but I'm around still busy in the kitchen. Here's a wonderful dish which grew from necessity and what available ingredients we had in the fridge. I guess you'll cook anything when you're hungry :-) Funny and desperate as the situation may have seemed at the time, it became an instant hit at home and I was always asking my wife for the "fish recipe" for lunch.

So just in time for the New Year here's a wonderful fish recipe you can add to your New Years Day Lunch lineup...I know I will be having some of this for sure. I'm always in awe with the colour the sweet peppers add to this dish. :-)

Here's steamed fish with stir fried veggies!


1 6 oz pack of white fish fillets
1 each of red, green and yellow sweet peppers
1 minced garlic clove
2 tsp. minced ginger root or powder
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. five spice
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cornstarch
4 tbsp. oil
4 oz mushrooms*
green seasoning to marinate the fish

*You can use your favourite mushroom. In this recipe we used Po Ku mushrooms.

Remove the seeds from the peppers and julienne into thin strips.

Blend the garlic, ginger, 2 tsp. of green seasoning, water, and five spice.
Pour over the fish and allow it to marinate for about 30 minutes.

Chop the mushrooms and set aside.

Place the peppers in 2 tbsp of oil and allow it to cook until slightly tender.

Toss in the mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. Cover and set aside

Place only the fish in a deep sauce pan or pot with 2 tbsp of oil and allow to cook.
You may have to turn it over after 5 minutes and let it cook on the other side.

Combine the cornstarch, sugar and the
remaining marinating sauce and pour over the fish.

Allow to simmer for another 10 minutes, or
until the fish is cooked and the sauce is thickened.

Remove from the pot and place in a casserole dish and...

top with the vegetables.

Place the casserole dish in a preheated oven and
allow to continue to cook for about 10 minutes at 250 degrees F

Remove and serve hot.

What else can I say, it's really delicious. You have to try it.

Happy New Year to one and all :-)

Since when is Fish Vegetarian or Vegan?


If you read the blog a bit you would know about the different types of vegetarians there are

pesco-vegetarian i.e. fish etc.
lacto-ovo vegetarian

Then it would be pesco vegetarian not vegetarian wouldn't it!
