- Preparing Grilled Spicy Salt Bagridae
As shared by the head chef, after cleaning, bagridae should be soaked in a mixture of white wine. Then, use a knife to make diagonal cuts on the fish body or cut it into circles as desired.
The skilled chef finely chops lemongrass, chili, purple shallots, and green onions, then places them in a bowl. Next, mix honey, oyster sauce, fish sauce, five-spice powder, chicken stock powder, seasoning powder, salt, sugar, and cooking oil in the bowl, stirring well. To achieve a beautiful golden color, you can add a bit of sesame oil for the fish. Marinate the fish in this mixture for about 30 minutes to allow it to absorb the flavors evenly, then arrange the fish on a grilling rack over the stove.
To prevent the fish from burning, flip the grilling rack regularly and use a brush to apply the sauce mixture to the fish's surface. When the fish turns a golden brown and releases a tempting aroma, it means the grilling process is complete.
Dipping sauce is an essential element in grilled fish dishes. To prepare it, finely chop lemongrass, add salt and pepper to a pan, and quickly sauté them on the stove. Then, add a bit of sesame oil and ground chili, stir well, and turn off the heat. Now you have a delicious dipping sauce to enjoy with grilled fish.
