Last week, I posted a tutorial about how to make Fujian-style soup, and I posted a photo of tomato fish along with the soup. My friends have been asking me how to cook this dish. So, here you go: this week's tutorial is about how to cook the tomato fish(no-tofu version, in case you're not a tofu fan.)
I used the sole fish I got from Walmart, and it's about $11 for 2 pounds. This dish takes about 15 minutes to prepare the fish and cook it with garlics, mushrooms and tomatoes.
First of all, unfrozen the fish and slice it into thin pieces.
Add some black pepper and salt.
Add some sweet potato flour(which can be found in Asian market,) so the fish would taste more tender.
Cut garlics, mushrooms and tomatoes.
Turn on the fire, have some oil on the pot and fry the garlics.
When you smell the garlic, it's time to add the tomatoes.
Fry the tomatoes for 1-2 minutes, and then add the mushrooms.
Wait for another 2-3 minutes. The dish is ready! (Since I already added salt on the fish, I think it's salty enough for me. But different people demand different level of salty, so taste it and see if you'd like more salt before you turn off the fire.)
