Flo Chang's poached fish

[Flo Chang: 9k]

Sprinkle a little salt and the ginger in the fish cavity.

Use a heavy skillet with a lid, large enough to hold the fish. Poach in 1/4 inch (1 cm) of water for about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the fish. The water keeps the saltwater fish from getting tough.

To serve, pour the sizzling peanut oil with garlic over the top and garnish with the green onion.

The Chang's treated us like family, maybe because we love to eat. When Flo visited Ron in Sydney in the 1960's, mullet was only $.25 a lb because the Australians considered it a rubbish fish. In Hawaii it was $1 USD a lb. She came back from the fish market with lots of mullet and poached it. When I met her in Hawaii in 1986, she taught me how to poach fish, but I didn't get it quite right. So this year, 1999, the whole family added in their comments and more ways to cook fish.
