Chinese Five Fish and Vegetables ~ Juicy, spicy Fish with equally delicious vegetables makes this a tasty, family dinner meal

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.

Simply Google “sustainable fish” and your country’s name and a list will appear.

I'm Chinese, and I'm wondering what this Chinese Five Spice consists of! We might call it something different over here :-)
