Shark Dish

I saw this fish fillet at wet market. When I know that this big piece of fish fillet was selling at RM6, I was overjoyed. I paid for it without giving it a second thought and my mind was filled with fish & chip. Right after I handed over the money to the fish seller, I saw her husband removing the skin from a baby shark and throw it to the fish fillet area. I was shocked and I knew that I had bought the wrong fish. I had never cooked a shark dish before. Luckily after a while, I came out with an idea. So I bought the other ingredients and went home to cook. :)

The fish fillet was even longer than my chopping board.

I cut the fish fillet into small pieces

Dry red chili, ginger, spring onion and garlic.
I did not take a picture of the seasonings. But in case you want to know, they were black soy sauce, fermented bean paste, sugar and corn flour for thickening.

This was the shark dish I cooked.
A bit like Kung Pow in cantonese(宫保) or maybe char hu in hokien(炒鱼).
