Pan Fried Threadfin Salmon With Salted Black Beans


This is a very tasty way to cook Threadfin Salmon aka Ikan Senangin in our local Malay language. We , Chinese called it 'Ma Yau Yue ' . Pan fried it with a little olive oil in a non-stick pan till both sides are lightly browned and cooked. Put the fish aside. Saute some garlic, chilli padi, salted black beans and fermented soybean till fragrant. Dish out the fish and scoop the sautéed black beans mixture on to the fish. Serve it with hot rice….yum yum yummy, the aroma of sautéed black beans mixture will whets up your appetite and it complement the fish well. This is also one easy way to cook a fish for dinner especially when one is rushing for time :)) ME... :p

Mmmmm ...........delicious
with those aromatic sauteed black beans mixture

I love simple preparation...the easiest , the better
and this one takes only 1/2 hour to prepare...
20 minutes to pan fried the fish and 10 minutes
to sauteed the black beans mixture....fast enough?

this was so delicious that I wanted to have the whole fish all to
myself :p...no that would be greedy...:))))

MMMmmmm......slurps slurps slurps


this is the brand of preserved black beans
that I used for this recipe..I bought it from a shop
in Ipoh old town, opp Kwong Fatt Textile

    1. Hi Bee,
      Better to store in fridge as it will take some time to finish :) Yours have ginger in them...mine doesnt have, I guess it is the same as anything to do with preserved black beans, you need ginger as well .
