  • Compared with drafted fish, black fish has higher nutritional value and has no small spines. It is often chosen to make pickled fish, boiled fish, tomato fish, etc.
  • When buying black fish in the market, the stall owner is required to cut the fish in the form of fillets
  • Wash the snakehead, the congestion in front of the spine must be removed, cut off the fins, and soaked in the blood
  • Cut out fish ribs
  • Starting from the tail, diagonally blade the fillets
  • Cut the fish bones into pieces, divide the fish bones into 2 basins, add 1 teaspoon of salt and 50 grams of green onion and ginger cooking wine to each of the fish bones to remove the fishy.
  • After grasping and pinching, the washed water is very mixed and eroded. Rinse the fillets and bones until the water is clear. Don’t omit this step. Doing so can remove fishy and make the fish fillets more refreshing and clean. There will be less foam when cooking.
  • Squeeze the fish fillets out of water, and absorb the water on fish bone kitchen paper towels for later use
  • Add 1 egg white, 1 tablespoon of salt, 10 grams of cooking wine, and appropriate amount of pepper to the fish fillets
  • Stir in the same direction evenly
  • Add 1 scoop of starch
  • Stir until thick
  • Marinate the fish fillets for 20 minutes
  • It is better to choose red, heavy, and soft tomatoes when buying tomatoes. The more red tomatoes, the higher the ripeness, the higher the lycopene content.
  • Cross knife in the middle of the tomato.
  • Blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for one minute to peel them
  • Tomato diced
  • Prepare 4 cloves of garlic and 4 slices of ginger
  • The food processor grinds into small particles
  • Ginger garlic or chopped for later use
  • Raise the frying pan and fry the fish bones
  • Turn over when frying until golden
  • When frying the other side, add a small part of the bottom of the pan and add minced garlic and ginger to fry until fragrant
  • Stir evenly
  • Add boiling water, add cooking wine, salt, and cook for 2-3 minutes. The soup will become milky white. The longer the cooking time, the whiter the soup. At the same time, skim the froth and taste. The fish soup at this time is very delicious! Decided to make a pot of thick soup fish fillets next time
  • Remove the fish bones to serve the bottom of the bowl, and set aside the fish soup
  • In a separate pot, add the diced tomatoes and stir fry. Like red oil, pickled peppers, etc. can be added at will
  • Add the fish bone broth and adjust the flavor at the same time
  • As long as your tomatoes are enough and red, there is no need to add ketchup at all! Add or not add ketchup at will!
  • Take-out tomato fish is often cooked with tomato sauce, which is far less delicious than pure tomato.
  • I personally suggest that ketchup is not added! You can add more tomatoes, the natural taste of pure tomatoes is better!
  • Add the fish fillets and cook until most of the fish fillets are discolored
  • Out of the pot
  • Sprinkle with white sesame seeds, pepper, green onion, drizzle with hot oil to stimulate the fragrance of green onions and pepper
  • You're done, does it seem appetizing?
  • Can’t save the last step, take half a slice of lemon
  • Squeeze lemon juice on tomato fish.
  • Taste, the tender and smooth fish fillets, the delicious sour fish soup, with the fragrance of lemon, are especially delicious
