If you haven’t tasted food cooked with Si Chuan spices, you gotta try it! The Ma la hype in Singapore is literally insane! Ma la hot pot, Stir Fry Ma la, Ma la chips, Ma la shaker fries from Mc Donalds and of course Chong Qing Ma la Grilled Fish! Got to admit, in Singapore, we really love a little spice in our lives from time to time.
As all homecooks know that eating fish outside is always very expensive as compared to cooking it at home! Here is a recipe that everybody can whip up easily at the convenience of your own home, Chong Qing Grilled Fish – ????. It is made even easier with the range of quality premade Ma la sauces easily found in the supermarket.
Enjoy this plate of fiery fish this CNY and hope you have a HUAT HUAT year! From The Meatmen, wishing everybody an Advanced Happy Chinese New Year! 🙂
