After the past few days of Christmas parties and ushering in the brand new year, I think a little fast home cook food is the order of the day. Today is still a national public holiday for us here and my hangover head figured a simple quick lunch will do.

Searching my fridge, I found a tempting piece of Dory I bought on New Years eve and my mother's recipe came to mind. It is tasty with a tangy taste of ginger which goes extremely well with steamed rice. Since it's a little too much portion for the both of us, I decided to invite my bachelor neighbour over to join us. After lunch we ended chit chatting for hours... nothing goes better with a delicious lunch than good company eh?

200g Dory Fish Fillet
1/2 tsp Salt
Pinch of White PepperWhite Pepper

2 tbsp Chopped Young Fresh Ginger
2 tsp Chopped GarlicGarlic

1 tbsp Oil
2 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Chopped Spring Onion

1. Clean the fish fillet and pat dry it thoroughly with kitchen paper.
2. Place the fish in a plate (or tray) for steaming.
3. Rub the fish with the salt.
4. Add pinch of pepper on it.
5. Sprinkle the chopped ginger on top.
6. Steam the fish fillet in a pre-heated wok for about 6 minutes.
7. In a non-stick pan, fry and brown the chopped garlic with 1 tablespoon oil
8. Pour the oil and fried garlic on to the fish when it is cooked.
9. Add soy sauce to the fish and sprinkle the chopped spring onion.
10. The fish is ready to be served.

Note: Codfish can be used instead of dory. Add another two minutes when steaming.
