Found cod fillet on promotion so bought it and decided to try something new today :) it is skinless and boneless, and was on half price!
Cut it into pieces. Not too small so you can taste the chunky texture. I cut it with kitchen scissors. Sprinkle with salt and pepper for marination
Sprinkle on some corn flour to coat
Rub gently with hands
Cut some garlic
To fry fish, heat pan with oil
On medium high heat
Arrange fillets when oil is hot
Let them cook. Only flip when you are convinced one side is cooked. You know it's cooked when the colour turns from transparent to white.
Put the pan in the grill to keep warm. I put the grill on 5 because i'm leaving the 'grill cover' opened. Do make sure it does not burn the food or the pan handle and most important yourself!
I'm making fish to go with egg fried rice
Learned from snapguider JasmineFoo, i cracked an egg on the rice. Mix the egg with the rice with a spoon. Keep aside.
Using another pan heat with oil
When garlic is fragrant, put the rice in egg mixture into the pan. Add on salt, pepper and chili. Mix and fry until the egg is cooked. I prefer frying rice in high heat
Keep mixing in high heat until egg mixture is cooked and dried up then reduce heat and keep frying until the rice reaches consistency that you like. I like dry as eating with gravy.
The gravy and flavour is completely optional and depends on your liking. I'm mixing both of them - szechuan tomato and black bean sauce . Be creative ;)
Two spoonful of each gravy onto the fillet pan back on stove. I did remove some of the fried garlic into the fish pan before making egg fried rice
Add two spoonful of water
Mix them gently without breaking the fish and let them simmer. You know it's done when gravy thickens! Feel free to add more seasoning like salt.
