Ingredients

Shan'shi ingredients

Additional ingredients

  • 600 g sea bass, well scaled
  • 2-3 spring onion stalks
  • 20 g ginger, peeled
  • 1 small red chili pepper
  • A little brown sugar

Preparation

Cut the spring onion, ginger and chili into very fine thin strips, which should be 2-4 cm long depending on the vegetables.

Put the chopped vegetables aside in a bowl of ice water (water with ice cubes).

Slice the fish so that the back is facing upwards and the inside is facing downwards.

Now steam the fish for about 8 minutes This can be done either in a steamer or in a pan with a steamer insert. Alternatively, you can heat water in a pan, place a bowl upside down in it and then place a heat-resistant plate with the fish on top. (It is important that the lid still fits for steaming)

After steaming, remove the fish and remove the excess liquid from the plate, or wipe dry.

Remove the vegetables from the bowl and dry them lightly on kitchen paper, then place them on top of the fish.

Sesambällchen mit roter Bohnenpaste

Sesame balls with red bean paste

Sesame balls with red bean paste

Delicious Asian dish

Ingredients

Shan'shi ingredients

Additional ingredients

  • 120 g glutinous rice flour
  • 40 g granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 80 ml boiling water
  • 200 g red bean paste, chilled
  • 3 tbsp white sesame seeds

Preparation

Mix the sugar, glutinous rice flour and salt and make a well in the center.

Add hot water and mix well with chopsticks, then knead into a dough with your hands. If the dough is too crumbly, add a tablespoon of warm water. If it is too runny, add a teaspoon or more of gluten flour.

Cover the dough and leave to rest at room temperature for half an hour.

Meanwhile, shape the bean paste into 10 equal-sized balls.

After the resting time, shape the dough into 10 equal balls and roll out into round discs (approx. 8 cm in diameter and half a cm thick).

Fill the dough with the bean paste and roll it into a round dumpling in your hand. Then moisten all over with a few drops of water and roll in sesame seeds so that the ball is covered all over.

Heat the oil in a pan to 150°C for deep-frying and deep-fry the balls until golden brown. Keep moving and basting with hot oil. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. If a ball bursts, remove it immediately so as not to contaminate the oil.

After 10 minutes, increase the oil temperature and fry the balls for a further 5 minutes until golden brown. (The total frying time is therefore about 15 minutes).

Remove the balls and leave to cool on a rack for 10 minutes before serving.
