i made spicy black bean sauce-song fish head 松鱼头 a few times recently.
i was at sheng shiong the other day & bought one whole song fish head松鱼头 for S$8.90. usually it is S$6.90 for 1/2 at sheng shiong so i don’t buy unless i go to chinatown market where they sell S$8 for one fish head.
this evening i did the best one yet on 10.9.2016.
my sis & bil think it’s better than the ones we had outside. i think so too la…^
so i had, for 1/2 song fish head松鱼头, a spicy black bean sauce mix of –
- 3 tbsp lee kum kee spicy black bean sauce
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tbsp olive oil (or vegetable oil)
- 2 tbsp mirin (optional)
- 2 tbsp light soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp corn flour
i mixed them cold to dissolve the corn flour & tasted the sauce. it was very good.
i then heat up a bit & the sauce became slight clumpy. i addd to the fish & steamed for 13mins in the steam oven.
fish was excellent as it was very fresh & the sauce was just perfect, spicy, tangy, not too sweet.
after trying the both watery & pasty sauce, i decided that the pasty sauce is the best preparation. 🙂
