Sole in a Chinese Style Black Bean Sauce

I asked my Dad yesterday if we had any Easter traditions around food growing up and really the only one was eating fish on Good Friday and of course having chocolate eggs. Here's a nice simple recipe for sole or any white fish in a Chinese style black bean sauce.


  • 2 tablespoon of fermented black bean sauce 
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 fillets of sole
  • 1/4 onion thinly sliced 
  • a bunch of spring onion cut into fairly large slices
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger/garlic paste 
  • one teaspoon of sugar
  • dash of sesame oil
  • one tablespoon of flour

  1. mix the black bean sauce, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sugar, sesame oil together in a bowl, taste as it can become too salty add a little more sugar to balance or water 
  2. coat fish in plain flour and lightly pan fry on each side in canola oil for 3-4 minutes 
  3. remove fish 
  4. re add onions and spring onions to large pan or wok and stir fry for 2 minutes add sauce and fish and simmer for 3-5 minutes 
  5. serve with rice and vegetables
Have a wonderful Easter everyone, God loves you :-) 

Headed to the airport to collect parents soon :-)
