Jacket Fish (Ikan Barat) with Steamed Sawi (Chinese mustard Green)- A Quickie Recipe

I love to cook jacket fish because it has lots of sweet flesh and don’t have fishy smell. Furthermore the bones are rather large and this makes it easier for my kids to eat it. I would serve jacket fish this way when I have very little time to cook. With this dish my family would have both vegetable and fish at the same time. Further more my little toddler can add the gravy to his rice. You can substitute jacket fish with other types of fish like snapper, grouper, cod and salmon.

Ingredients
Jacket Fish, 1 pc
Light Soya Sauce, 2 table spoons
Sawi (Chinese Mustard Green), 1 bunch
Garlic, 5 pcs, chopped finely, fried until golden brown
Sesame oil, 1 table spoon
Sugar, ½ teaspoon

Deep fry the jacket fish until golden brown. Put it aside. Arrange the sawi (Chinese Mustard Green) on plate. Add sesame oil, light soya sauce and sugar. Steam the sawi over high heat for 2 minutes. Put the fish together with the steamed sawi, garnish with fried garlic and serve.

What is jacket fish in Cantonese? Have never heard of this fish before. Maybe I have tasted it before without knowing its name.

This fish is sooo underrated in New Zealand. I can buy 20 for 5US dollars.

They are so nice deep fried and eaten with a sauce. Chili, kecap manis, mayo, BBQ, anything. Enak!
