Tilapia With Salted Black Beans

Dinner tonight is a Chinese fish dish.


Serves 6

6 Tilapia fillets
2 tbsp. Tausi or Fermented Black Beans
1 large green onion, julienned
3 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and julienned
2 inch piece of fresh Jalapeno, seeded and deveined, and julienned
1/2 cup corn starch

First, soak the black beans in approximately 1/4 cup water until soft and then drain.

Heat a heavy skillet and add approximately 1/4 cup of oil for frying fish. I used a combination of vegetable, olive and light sesame oil.

Fry fish which has been salted, pepped and coated lightly with cornstarch until golden.

Remove to a platter.

In the oil that is left in the skillet add the remaining ingredients and fry until all the vegetables are lightly brown. You may add a little water, approximately 1/4 cup if you would like a light sauce.

Pour over the fried fish and serve with white rice. I am serving Jasmine rice tonight.
