This is one of the family favourite and it’s amazingly easy to prepare, requiring little to now skill. First of all, you’ve got to heat up your Teflon-coated pot with some oil and fry a large sliced onion and garlic in it until they start to brown.
Put in the fish, fry it quickly on both sides, then add 2-3 cups of water, a dash of pepper, about 3 tablespoons of light soya sauce and a couple of cubes of sugar – for this amount of fish. Put the lid on and simmer for 10 minutes. Add half a cup of Chinese cooking wine and simmer for another 5 minutes and you’re done.
