baby shark fish curry & Nyonya assam curry), sambal (stingray sambal) and deep fried (fish mango salsa & spicy fried fish) Tired of repeating the same recipes, thanks to my colleague for suggesting and sharing this fish soup recipe. Fish soup? Sure enough, at first I was a little sceptical but after some changes to the original recipe, I must stay soup turned out quite nice - succulent fish in the clear soup made with lemongrass, ginger, chillies and spring onion was so nice.
400g threadfin/kurau fish - cut into bite sizes
1 inch ginger - crushed/smashed
4 shallots - crushed/smashed
1 lemongrass - bruised
1/2 tbsp lemon juice (or as preferred)
3 to 4 birds eye chillies - optional
2 stalks spring onions - cut into 1 inch length
1 tbsp oil
1/2 liter of water
Pepper and salt for taste
Mix fish with crushed ginger, shallots and smashed lemongrass.
Heat oil and lightly fry the fish to release its aroma.
Pour water and simmer to cook fish.
Season with salt and pepper.
Add in chillies.
Stir and simmer for another minute.
Remove from heat and combine in spring onion.
