Good Fortune Fish


  • 30 g ginger
  • 60 ml soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 15 g fresh coriander
  • 1 red chilli, seeded cut in half
  • 5 spring onion
  • 60 ml vegetable oil
  • 400 g whole fish
  • Vegetable oil, as needed
  • Clean your fish, removing the scales, gills, and trimming any fins. Choose a fish of a suitable size for your Instant Air Fryer.
  • Cut the very dark green tops from your spring onions and set these aside, before thinly slicing the remaining spring onion.
  • Pat your fish dry with paper towels, both inside and out.
  • Stuff the fish with half of the ginger matchsticks, and the dark green tops of the spring onions, then fill the remaining space with about ½ of the coriander.
  • Brush the outside of the fish with a little vegetable oil then place inside the Air Fryer, on top of a small piece of baking paper.
  • Select Air Fry, and set the temperature to 195°C and set the time to 12 Minutes.
  • While the fish cooks make the sauce: Place your remaining ginger in a heat proof bowl, along with a few of the spring onions, reserving some for garnish.
  • Heat the vegetable oil in a saucepan until nearly smoking, then pour this over the spring onions and ginger, which will sizzle and bubble.
  • Stir in the soy, sugar and rice wine vinegar.
  • Once the fish has cooked, and the flesh just flakes from the bones, remove from the air fryer and transfer to a serving plate.
  • Spoon over the soy dressing, then top the fish with your remaining fresh coriander, spring onions and thinly sliced chilli.
  • Serve alongside your favourite sides to make this dish a hearty complete meal.
