Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. Place cornflour in a bowl. Gradually whisk in eggs until smooth. Stir in chilli.

2. Heat oil in a wok or large saucepan until sizzling. Dip fish pieces in batter, drain off excess, and cook in batches. Drain on paper towel.

3.Heat extra oil in a wok or large frying pan. Stir-fry green onion, ginger and garlic for 1 minute.

4. Blend in water, sauce and sugar. Bring to boil. Toss through fish. Serve with rice and garnish with shredded green onion.
