Chinese New Year Fortune Fish with Bak Kwa


2 Fish fillets
8 Flower mushrooms
8 slices of Bak Kwa
8 slices of Ginger
2 sprigs Spring onion
2 tsp Oyster sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp Chinese wine
½ tsp Corn flour
Pinch of Pepper
Parsley for decoration
Marinade for Mushrooms:
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
½ tsp Oyster sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil


Soak mushrooms till soft. Remove stem & marinate for at least 30 mins. Heat oil & fry mushrooms lightly till fragrant. Remove & set aside.
Rinse & cut fillets into 8 equal parts. Marinate fish with seasonings.
Cut Bak Kwa into bigger pieces if you prefer a sweeter taste. Place spring onions on microwavable crockery & arrange fish, mushroom & Bak Kwa neatly on the spring onions. Cover with plastic wrapper. Do not seal tightly. Microwave in Auto Steam mode, or on med-high for about 5-6 mins.
Remove plastic & use a toothpick to check if fish is cooked. Toothpick can easily go through if it’s thoroughly cooked. Decorate with parsley & serve this swanky fish hot!
