I love this recipe! It is delicious, easy, and quick. The only trouble is that you can not do the stir frying until you’re ready to eat, i.e. its got to be done while your guests are already there!
It doesn’t present a problem for me, as I have an open kitchen, and I can work while still chatting with my guests. Asking for the occasional help from your guests won’t hurt either, just keep the wine flowing and the conversation going, and you’ll be done before you know it!
I usually serve this dish with Sayaddeya Rice w/shrimps. You will find the recipe in the Rice section.
1 kg fish fillet (I find Perch fillets readily available in the frozen section of our supermatket, and I like the fact that Perch doesn’t smell very “fishy”. But you can use any of your favourite kinds as long as its meaty, firm, and doesn’t tend to fall apart easily).
a small piece of ginger grated
grated rind from 1 lemon
pepper flakes (I didn’t measure, I just sprinkled! Same for the paprika and the salt.)
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsps fish sauce
1 medium onion cut in wedges
1 red pepper cut in medium size pieces
Cut the fish in fairly decent size cubes
sprinkle all the spices including the lemon juice & the fish sauce
add some olive oil
mix well with your hands and everything is nicely combined
add the cut onions & peppers
mix, cover, and place in the refrigerator
(You can do all this ahead of time, as the fish tastes better when its been left to marinate for a few hours. You will need to get it out of the fridge about an hour or so before you anticipate using it).
when ready, heat your frying pan, add a tiny bit of olive oil, and place the fish kebabs & vegetables in smallish batches, making sure not to crowd the pan. Shake to stir as its cooking, try not to use the spatula too much so as not to brake the fish
when you’re satisfied with the colour, add a tiny bit of white wine in the corner of the pan (not directly on the fish), and “shake” the pan to de-glaze and coat the fish
remove to your serving dish, and continue with your batches until all the fish is done
tare some parsley pieces on top and serve.
