  1. Here is southern Chinese food in its simplest and most divine form.
  2. I love salted black beans but have always had trouble Stir frying delicate fish fillets as they tend to crumble.
  3. I now have to worry no more: having learnt the tricks from Chinese masters I realise how easy it is.
  4. When the fish is put in a marinade of egg white and cornflour there has to be sufficient cornflour to hold the fish together when it is cooked.
  5. The fish also has to be allowed to sit in this marinade for at least two hrs. The fish also needs to be precooked very briefly in water.
  6. This has to be done tenderly just before it is put in its sauce.
  7. For those who like fish I can't recommend a better way to prepare it.
  8. It is light delicate and full of flavour.
  9. MethodCut each fish fillet in half lengthways.
  10. Then cut it crossways into 5cm wide strips and put them in a wide bowl.

  25. Just before eating put about 2cm water into a large fryingpan and bring it to the boil. Then turn the heat down to a bare simmer.
  26. Put the fish into the water separating the pcs very gently and spreading them around in the pan.
