  • 1 lb. fish
  • 2-inch ginger (peeled, cut into thin strips)
  • 1 stalk scallion (cut into 2-inch length and then into thin strips)
  • Oil for deep frying

Soy Sauce Mixture:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 2 dashes white pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


  • Remove scales, gills, and clean the fish thoroughly. Pat dry with paper towels. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce mixture and set aside.
  • Heat up a big wok with enough oil to deep fry the fish, or use a deep fryer. Deep fry the fish until golden brown and crispy. Transfer out to a serving plate.
  • In a wok, add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil. When it’s hot, stir-fry the ginger strips until golden brown and transfer out. Using the same oil, add the soy sauce mixture until it boils.
  • Pour the soy sauce over the fish and garnish with the fried ginger strips and scallions.
  • Serve immediately with steamed white rice.
