Fish Dishes for the Lunar New Year Dinner in the Year of Dragon
Main ingredient: 1 whole small mouthed threadfin fish (450 grams)
Secondary ingredients: Pepper salt or seven-spice mixture
  1. Cut crosses on the small mouthed threadfin fish and put it on a piece of kitchen paper to absorb the water.
  2. Salt the fins (heat insulation).
  3. Preheat a household oven for 3 minutes.
  4. Adjust upper heat to 250°C and lower heat to 180°C. Bake both sides of the fish for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add lemon pepper salt or seven-spice mixture on top before serving.

Cooking tips: When grilling fish, start at a lower temperature and turn to high temperature for the color.
Chef’s advice for pan-frying and deep-frying fish: Removing water from the fish is a MUST. If you omit this step, the fish will never get crispy!
