Recipe Ingredient

  • 700 g fish head (kurau or red snapper)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour (mixed with 1/2tsp salt)
  • Aromatic Garnish
  • 1 tbsp garlic (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp red chilli (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp spring onion (chopped)
  • Seasoning
  • 1 tsp five-spice powder
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar

  5. Add in the aromatic garnish and stir-fry briefly over medium heat until fragrant.
  6. Add the prefried fish head and seasoning. Stir-fry briskly over high heat until well combined.
