  • 2 star anise
  • 2 tbsp Shao Xing rice wine

To Prep:

  1. Wash and then dry fish steaks thoroughly with kitchen paper.
  2. Chop the steaks in half, chopping just to the side of the spine bone.
  3. Mix salt, five spice powder and white pepper, then sprinkle all over the fish steaks. Let marinate for 10 mins.

Marination Sauce:

  1. Add all ingredients for the sauce into a small pot and stir over low heat for 5 minutes to get all the flavour
  2. Pour into a bowl big enough to fit all the fish and let cool to room temperature.

To Cook:

  1. Heat up 2 cups of oil in a small pot.
  2. Slide the fish into the hot oil, a couple of pieces at a time, and fry until the fish is a golden brown.
  3. Remove to kitchen paper covered plates to let excess oil drain off. Repeat for all pieces of fish.
  4. When the fish has cooled, add them to the sauce, making sure the pieces are submerged into the sauce and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours before serving or cover and let it marinate overnight in the fridge.
  5. Place the fish onto a serving plate and drizzle with the sauce.
