250 grams fish fillets, thawed
2 slice ginger root, minced
1 stalk spring onion, chopped
10 grams jiafan rice wine
1 gram white pepper powder
3 grams salt
Frying oil
White sesame seeds
1 tablespoon tartar sauce or mayonnaise
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Pinch of salt

Rinse the fish fillets. Pat them dry and cut into narrow strips. Place them in a shallow bowl.

Marinate the fish with chopped onion, minced ginger, rice wine, pepper, and salt. Set aside for 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Discard marinade. Beat egg lightly, then blend in cornstarch, flour and pinch of salt to make a batter.

Heat oil. Dip fish strips in batter, then roll in sesame seeds to coat. Lower the coated fish strips, several at a time, into the pan and deep-fry until golden crispy. Drain on kitchen towel and serve immediately with tartar or any desired sauce.
