Steamed Cod with Fried Garlic and Scallion

The man has hinted me enough times that he's craving for cod and so I granted his wish by placing this on the dinner table last night. He was won over instantly when he took the first bite, but what he didn't know was how simple this recipe actually is. This is my kind of food, easy to make but fulfilling nonetheless. 

Serves 2

1 medium slice or 2 small slices     cod 
3 slices                                            old ginger 
3 cloves                                           garlic, minced
1                                                      scallion, chopped thinly
1 tablespoon                                    light soy sauce
1 tablespoon                                    water
1 tablespoon                                    chinese cooking wine
1 teaspoon                                       sugar 
3 tablespoons                                  cooking oil


Place the fish on top of the ginger slices and steam on high heat for approx. 7 minutes. 

Mix the light soy sauce, sugar, water and chinese cooking wine in a bowl, making sure to dissolve the sugar granules. Set aside. 

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil and fry the minced garlic until golden brown. 

Remove the steamed fish from the steamer, drain away the water from the plate and pour the soy sauce mixture on it. Place the fried garlic on top of the fish, garnish with scallion and pour the hot garlic oil over. Serve hot.
