Preparation time- 5 minutes

Cooking time – 20 minutes

For 4 people

  • Fish (tilapia, bassa, hake/merluza) – 4 fillets (cut in pieces).

( I used Tilapia)

  • 2 medium onions – finely sliced
  • 200 gms mushrooms – chopped
  • 6 cloves Garlic- finely chopped
  • 3 Tablespoon -Soya sauce ( Kikkoman)
  • 1 Tablespoon -Rice vinegar
  • Coriander leaves, finely chopped – to garnish
  • Oil for cooking
  • Water- 2-3 Tablespoon, to be used to prevent the onion mix sticking to the pan and making the gravy.


  • Heat oil in a frying pan on high heat and sauté the sliced onions and garlic for 3-4 minutes until the onions become golden brown
  • Add mushrooms and stir fry on high heat for 2 minutes
  • Add the soya sauce, turn the heat down, cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Add some water if you find the onion mix is sticking to the pan. The water also makes the gravy which makes a nice base for the dish.
  • Gently add the fish pieces, mix lightly to make sure the pieces are nicely coated with the sauce mix
  • Add the rice vinegar. Cover and cook on medium heat for 8 minutes.
  • Garnish with coriander


Options- you can add fresh ginger, spring onions or chopped green peppers.
