Main Ingredients

  • 800 grams cod filet sliced into bite size pieces
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 red chilli sliced
  • 2 tsp ginger chopped
  • 2 stalk green onion chopped
  • 1 tsp cane sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp Dry Sherry Wine

Fish Marinade


  • Pat fish very dry and slice into bite size pieces. This step is very important.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together your marinade ingredients. Marinate fish in batter.
  • In a pot with avocado oil set over high heat, shallow fry your battered fish until golden crispy brown, about 7 minutes. Remove fish from pot. Pour out the oil.
  • In the same pot set over medium heat, saute ginger, garlic, red chilli, green onion and sugar. Throw in battered fish. Pour Dry Sherry over top. Fry for 1 minute and serve. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
