Sliced Pacific Cod with Sugar Snap Peas (甜豆魚片)

Pacific cod with sugar snap peas


  • 0.5lb Pacific cod filet, sliced (or any other white fish)
  • 0.8lb sugar snap peas, fibrous string removed
  • 2 king oyster mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 small red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 slices ginger
  • Sauce: 1 tbsp rice wine, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1/2 tsp salt
  • Thickener: 1 heaping tsp cornstarch, some water


  1. Heat up a lug of oil and fry the garlic until fragrant. Add the cod and sear until 90% done. Give it a pinch of salt. Only turn once or twice, otherwise it will fall apart. Set aside.
  2. Add another lug of oil and fry the garlic until fragrant. Add in the peas, mushrooms, and bell pepper. Season with a pinch of salt and stir. Pour in a little water if it looks dry. Cover and stir occasionally until almost cooked through.
  3. Return the fish, pour in the “sauce”, and stir. Add the thickener when it’s done, give it a stir, and serve when it comes back to a boil.
