Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1.5kg whole snapper or other firm white fish
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 sticks celery, with leaves
1 large carrot, quartered
6 thin slices fresh ginger
125ml chinese wine or dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
2 chicken stock cubes

Fish dressing

Quantity Ingredient
60ml oil
80g cashews, toasted
125g Cha shiu, diced
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 spring onions, thinly sliced

Method

  1. Clean and scale the fish, leaving the head on. To clean the cavity, wipe inside the fish cavity with damp paper towel that has first been dipped in coarse salt. Trim any long spines or fins neatly.
  2. Pour enough water into a wok or large heavy-based frying pan to cover the fish, but don’t add the fish yet. Add all of the other ingredients and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and allow to simmer for 5 minutes, then bring to a fast boil and add the fish. After the water comes to the boil again, reduce the heat to low and poach the fish for 8–10 minutes, or until cooked through. Turn off the heat, carefully lift out the fish and allow any excess liquid to drain off, then put the fish on a serving platter.
  3. To dress the fish, heat the oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the cashews and stir until golden, then remove to a plate and reserve the oil. Add the pork to the wok and stir-fry until crisp. Pour off the fat that has collected in the wok, return 3 tablespoons of oil in which the cashews were fried and heat gently. Combine the soy sauce and sesame oil and spoon over the fish, then quickly pour over the hot oil. Garnish with the spring onion, pork and cashews before serving.
