Red Snapper in Oyster Sauce

When I was clearing my freezer at the end of summer,I found out I still have a pack of boneless Red Snapper sitting at the bottom of the freezer.I remember I bought the Red Snapper from Trader Joe's months ago.Considering the price $6.99 per pound is not bad at all because what written on the tag the Red Snapper is "Wild" caught.I know Red Snapper is a premium fish if it's compare with Tilapia..Well,what should I cook with it? spicy or non-spicy? hmmmm....I want to cook this red snapper for Mishu.Wishful thinking...But it's end up,I'm the one who finish all up!!!


1 pound boneless Red Snapper,thawed
1 tsp salt
4 tbsp rice flour
2 cloves garlic,peeled and minced
1 inch old ginger,sliced
1 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp rice wine(shao xiang)
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground white pepper powder
soy sauce to taste
1 tbsp corn flour + 2 tbsp cold water
5-6 tbsp cooking oil


1:Season red snapper with some salt.Then coated with rice flour.Heat deep skillet with oil at medium high heat.Place coated red snapper into hot oil.Pan fry both side of the fish until golden brown.remove the fish from skillet to a plate,set aside.
2:Use the same skillet,remove some oil if it's too much oil leftover from pan-fry.Add in sliced ginger and garlic into the skillet.Fry until fragrant or lightly brown.
3:Add in rice wine,oyster sauce,sugar,soy sauce and pepper powder,stir and mix well.Lastly add in corn flour dissolve into the gravy to make the gravy have thicken or googy texture.Check the seasoning.Place the pan-fry fish into the gravy before dish out and serve warm .
