Chinese Five Fish and Vegetables

Chinese Five Fish and Vegetables ~ Juicy, spicy Fish with equally delicious vegetables makes this a tasty meal {just add mashed potatoes!} #Fish #ChineseFive #Seafood #LowFat
I do not post a lot of fish related recipes, simply because I normally mess up fish. Mine would come out either overdone {dry}, half raw or falling apart.

However, this Chinese Five Fish and Vegetables dish is a no-fail recipe, which I make often, and it is always a success.

The Chinese Five is a delicious spice, which is just about what makes this dish so wonderful. The Fish and the vegetables have their own flavor, but with the added spice, it just works great.

I found this recipe in one of my very few low-fat cook books years ago and have been making it since. This is from the Gesonde Gesinskos book {which I have adapted slightly over the years}

Be sure to use a white fish variety which will firm up, rather than fall apart, on cooking and is definitely on the list of sustainable fish. {The South-African list can be found HERE }

Season to taste with Salt and Black Pepper. Serve the Fish together with the vegetables and mashed potatoes. {and perhaps a small side salad}
