CORAL TROUT ON HOKKIEN NOODLES WITH MUSHROOMS & BROTH
COOKBOOK: Gourmet Menus
Coral trout is a pretty big fish! Buy it whole and have it filleted for this recipe. I was able to get two very large fillets from each fish. These were very thick fillets which were then cut into 4 portions each.
A lovely flavoursome fish! Not a cheap fish to buy but it was perfect for this dish. You can cook it without the skin , but I chose leave it on.
6 pieces of coral trout ( 1 whole fish- filleted)
200g fresh egg noodles
1 litre of chicken or fish stock
1 tablespoon , chopped ginger
1 carrot, julienned or sliced finely
16-20 mixed mushrooms
4 shallots, sliced finely
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/3 cup of rice wine
Heat oil in pan.
Season coral trout with salt and pepper and cook fish, turning once after 3 minutes and cooking on other side only for a few seconds. Remove fish and keep warm.
Cook noodles as super package instructions, drain and set aside.
Heat stock in a wok, add ginger , carrots and shallots and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until carrots are just soft. Then add soy sauce and rice wine (not shown on the video) .
Add mushrooms and simmer for a further 3-4 mins. Add the noodles and mix.
In a round deep plate divide the broth and vegetables and top with a piece of coral trout. Serve immediately.
