Fish and Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce Stirfry

Fish and Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce Stirfry. One of the quickest method of cooking is stirfry, of course it is a Chinese cooking method using a wok with high heat, I would not elaborate any further instead I would like to share another stirfry dish I made using white fish fillet. My fish and bok choy with oyster sauce stirfry is made up of red snapper fillet and Chinese bok choy vegetable stirfried with oyster sauce. The recipe is somewhat similar to my Beef with Bok Choy in OysterSauce. This is the first time I cooked this stirfry combination and I would say it is as yummy as it could be. The fresh fish and a good oyster sauce made the difference. You may try it with other white fish as long as it is fresh or perhaps harvested fresh like those frozen cream dory fish fillet. For the vegetables the local pechay may be used although it may be a bit bitter. I marinated the fish with some lemon maybe kalamansi would have been better, and some soy sauce and cornstartch. Here is the recipe of my Fish and Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce Stirfry.


300g white fish fillet, cut into strips
1 bunch baby bok choy, cut into serving pieces, stalk thinly sliced
1 medium size onion, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 thumb size ginger, peeled, cut into thin strips
2-3 stalks leeks, cut diagonally
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup oyster sauce
1/4 cup cornstarch
juice from 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
sesame oil
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

Marinate fish in lemon juice, soy sauce and cornstarch for 5 to 10 minutes. In a wok, heat generous amount of cooking oil and stir fry garlic and ginger for a minute or until fragrant. Add in onion and stir fry for another half a minute. Remove stirfried aromatics from the pan and keep aside. Using the same pan stirfry fish in batches for 3 to 5 minutes until it start to sizzle and seared, remove from wok and keep aside. Using the same wok return the stirfried aromatics and add in the bok choy stalks and stir cook for 1 to 2 minutes then add in the leafy part of bok choy and stir cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Now add in the stirfried fish, the oyster sauce and the leeks, stir cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Correct saltines if require and season with pepper powder. Drizzle with a few drops of sesame oil. Serve hot.
