Fish and Seafood

Fish with Bitter Melon
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed with the flat blade side of a cleaver
1 small onion, cut top to root in half-inch sections
1 pound firm bean curd, cut into two-inch cubes
2 bitter melons, seeds and pulp discarded, sliced into half-inch circles
1/2 pound of any skinless and boneless white fish fillet
1 Tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1 cup chicken or fish broth or water
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1. Heat wok or fry pan and add the oil, then the garlic and onion pieces and stir-fry for one minute, before adding the bean curd. Let that fry until golden brown, then turn bean curd over to fry on its other side.
2. Sprinkle bitter melon pieces on the bean curd and top with the fish fillet; then scatter ginger and salt over this, and pour the broth down the side of the wok or pan, and cover it and simmer for three minutes before removing the cover and adding the sesame oil.
3. Transfer to a pre-heated bowl, and serve.
