Sea bass

Boiled fish


Marinate the fish in ginger, 4 slices of lime, 2 tbs soy sauce, and lemon juice.

Poach in water for about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, soak the vermicelli in hot water (not boiling) for 6-7 minutes, rinse with cold water, drain well and cut them.

Sauté the onion and cabbage in a small amount of canola/ sunflower oil for a few minutes. Then add the carrot. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, then remove from stove.

Carefully clean the fish, season, and set aside the flesh.

Add the fish to the cooled vegetable mix and season with the rest of the soy sauce.

Add the egg, sugar, vermicelli, and spring onion and mix well.

Place a small amount of filling on the spring roll sheet and roll tightly.

Wash the final corner of the spring roll with the egg white and roll to seal.

Continue with the rest of the rolls.

Heat the oil in a deep pan and fry the spring rolls on medium heat until golden-brown.

Remove and place on absorbent paper.

For the sauce, mix all the ingredients together and serve.
