This was a huge winner at our dinner table last night. Inspired by the Chinese-Style Stir-Fry and and Asian-Style Fish Fillets in the Everyday Cookbook.
With the simple flavours of garlic and ginger, this is a super tasty dish. What’s more, its a nice, easy recipe that requires about ten minutes in the kitchen and then sixteen minutes to cook. Who loves their Thermomix!
