Steamed Fish and Stir Fried Veggies

15 Feb

Joe and I recently discovered a brand of Hoki at Aldi that claims to be sustainably farmed. As we know, there are a lot of evils regarding the fishing industry (long lines killing non target species, trawlers nets damaging reef systems and upsetting bentic sediments ect) and we had decided to stop eating fish quite some time ago because of it. When we saw this, we decided to give it a try while I do some homework on what their exact fishing methods are (watch this space)!

So tonight we decided to sample said product… What I ended up with was Steamed Fish and Stir Fried Veggies.

Ingredients – Serves 2

Fish

½ Chili finely chopped(remove seeds if you like a milder sauce)

1 teaspoon grated ginger

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 pieces of fish

Vegetables

½ zuchini

½ red capcicum

½ red onion

1 stick celery

bunch baby brocoli

handful baby spinach

2 spring onions

½ Chili (remove seeds if you like a milder sauce)

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the fish marinade, and spread over the fish. Refrigerate covered for 2 – 12 hours. In a steaming basket, lay the fish on to a little baking paper with holes cut into it (to allow steam movement). Place the steaming basket over a pot of boiling water and cook for 8 – 10 minutes.
  2. For the stir fry, chop all vegetables into bite size pieces. Pour the oil into a hot wok followed by the spices, herbs and fish sauce. Add all the vegetables (except the spinach) and stir fry for 3 – 4 minutes, until tender but firm. Stir through the spinach to wilt it before serving.

Notes

  • This was really delicious, and we really enjoyed it a lot! Simple flavours.
  • I really want to give a shout out to my NZ readers. Hello you guys from Naenae!
  • Diabetics note: This meal has little to no carb content! I had to balance it out with some ice cream. Ahhh, treats are good, sometimes, right? =) You could probably add some egg noodles to stretch the veggies further and boost the carb content, but I didn’t have any today.
