Fortune Fish with Bak Kwa (奇味肉干蒸鱼)

    55 mins

    It’s Chinese New Year & the craze is Bak Kwa, where prices of these Chinese Jerky escalated through the ceiling. I decided to experiment with this as one of the ingredients for my CNY Reunion Dinner. Why not try cooking this flavourful fish, with taste oozing from the sweetness of the Bak Kwa & the fragrance of Flower Mushrooms?
