Asian Style Snapper

Inspired by the Hongkong takeaways here in NZ, I will share you my own version of Deep Fry Asian  Snapper Fish. I love the combination of ginger, coriander and black beans topped with this very crispy catch of the day – Red Snapper! It is 17 dollars in takeaways, A kilo of snapper cost you 8.99 nz, You save a lot and you got two big fish. Have a great dinner!!


Ingredients: good for 3-4 persons

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp ginger sliced thinly
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 pcs medium red snapper
  • 1 cup water dissolve in 1 tsp corn flour
  • chopped coriander
  • 1 small can of black beans (use 3 tbsp and mashed it)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • light soy sauce


  • heat oil in pan and saute garlic, ginger and onions. Saute for 2 minutes then add black beans and soy sauce and rest of the ingredients
  • Topped in a deep fried red snapper.
  • Yumm!!!
