Five-Spiced Alaska Pollock

Five flavours - sour, bitter, sweet, pungent, and salty - are found in this unique five-spice powder containing fennel seeds/小茴香籽, cloves/丁香, and Chinese cinnamon/肉桂, along with star anise/八角 and Szechuan peppercorns/花椒 .

  • 3 Frozen Alaska pollock, thawed
  • 10 g Red pepper, thinly shredded
  • 1/2 stalk Spring onion, shredded
  • 1 tbsp Salad oil
  • 2 tbsp Light soya sauce
  • 2/3 tbsp Jiafan rice wine
  • 1/5 tsp Five spice powder
  • 1/5 tsp White pepper powder
  • 1/2 stalk Spring onion, cut into segments
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Light soya sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Five-spice powder
  • 2 tbsp Water
  1. Rinse and pat dry fish fillets. Cut each into 2-3 even chunks and place them in a bowl. Add in marinade and set aside for 10-15 minutes. Strain the marinade into another bowl and stir in all the ingredients for the sauce.

  2. Heat the oil till it is bubbling, then turn heat down to about medium-low. Place fillets into the pan and cook, covered, for 3-5 minutes until cooked thoroughly. Transfer the fish on a serving plate and sprinkle the shredded red pepper and spring onion over. Pour the sauce into the skillet and bring it to a boil. Pour the sauce over the fish and serve immediately.

5 star foodie: the fish tastes 100% Chinese and good. Just not easy to pair with wine.
