King George Whiting with General Tso’s Sauce

To a small bowl add the stock, vinegar, Chinese cooking wine, soy sauce, sugar, and half of the corn flour. Mix to combine and set aside.

To another bowl, add the Ferguson King George whiting and the remaining corn flour. Mix to coat the fish, and set aside.

Heat a large frypan over high heat and add half of the oil. Once very hot, add the King George whiting. Cook for 2 minutes, tossing occasionally, until the whiting is seared all over. Remove the whiting from the pan, and place the pan back over high heat. Add the remaining oil, carrot, beans, garlic and ginger. Cook for 2 minutes, whilst stirring. Add the prepared sauce and cook for another minute. Return the King George whiting to the pan, toss to coat, and remove from the heat. Serve with steamed rice.
