    Marinade

    Cornstarch Paste

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix together marinade, and mix together cornstarch paste.
    2. 2
      Cut the fish into 1/2-inch slices and put in a bowl with marinade; mix well and set aside.
    3. 3
      Drain and squeeze the mushrooms; remove the stems and slice the caps.
    4. 4
      Cut the red and green peppers into 3/4-inch strips, and then diagonally into lozenge shapes.
    5. 5
      Cut the scallion greens into bite-sized pieces.
    6. 6
      Heat the wok over high heat, then add some peanut oil. When hot, add the fish and stir with chopsticks to separate the slices; when they are white but not fully cooked, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside.

      Drain off all but three tablespoons of the oil, and return the wok to the stove top over high heat; add the garlic, ginger, mushrooms and peppers and stir-fry until fragrant; add the fish and season with soy sauce, vinegar and salt to taste; add the stock, and then the cornstarch paste, stirring as it thickens the liquid to a glaze.
    8. 8
      Stir in the scallion greens and then, off the heat, the sesame oil. Serve.

      Lovely fish dish. It reminds me of Moo Goo Gai Pan only prepared with fish instead of chicken. I ordinarily prefer spicy Szechuan type dishes but this mild recipe lets fresh ingredients shine. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks Jen!
