Asian Style Tilapia

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey?  


600g tilapia filets, cut into larger cubes
1 bunch spring onions, cut in approx. 3 cm long pieces
1 red bell pepper, cut in thin strips
50g cashew nuts, roasted and ground
1-2 red chilies, de-seeded and finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
6 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons sugar
50 ml peanut oil


In a small bowl mix together the soy sauce and sugar until it dissolves.

Pour the peanut oil in a wok and allow it to get very hot. Add the fish cubes and quickly fry it from all sides. Using a slotted spoon, take the fish out and place on a plate lined with paper towels to soak in excess oil.

Pour out almost all of the oil from the wok, leaving just enough to sauté the vegetables. Throw in the spring onions and bell peppers, sauté on high heat for 2 minutes. Add the chilies and garlic and pour in the soy sauce-sugar mixture. Simmer for a further 1 minute.

Finally put the fish back into the wok and coat with sauce. Add the cashew nuts and serve immediately.  

Serve with Chinese style vegetarian noodles.
