Grilled Cod Fish [Y3K Recipes Issue No. 53]

Grilled Cod Fish

Cod fish in Malaysia is expensive, a small piece of fillet (half of a steak-cut) costs RM10++. Fillets are often bought for J, for the ease of eating as they usually come with less or no bone. I suppose many parents are doing the same?

At times it is hard to get J to eat fish, this is one of the few fish dishes he enjoys. It can be prepared in less than 15 minutes, a quick lunch for J and I.

Grilled Cod Fish Recipe

150g cod fish fillet
4-5 Asparagus, sliced
¼ Carrot, sliced
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp oyster sauce
1 clove garlic, sliced
2 tbsp cooking oil
Pinch of sugar
Pinch of salt


  1. Heat a non-stick pan, add in cooking oil and fry garlic until golden brown. Transfer garlic and oil into a bowl, set aside.
  2. Wipe pan with a paper towel to remove excess oil, pan-grill fish until both sides are brown lightly.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce and oyster sauce. While the pan still hot, pour it over the fish and turn the heat off.
  4. In a separate pot, boil water with pinch of sugar and salt. Drop in vegetables and cook until desired softness is obtained, drain.
  5. Transfer vegetables into a plate, place grilled fish over the bed of vegetables and drizzle the sauce plus one teaspoon of garlic oil over fish and vegetables.
  6. Serve warm with steamed rice.

Cook's Notes:

  1. Sauce should be added when the pan still hot, it will caramelise a little and thus enhance both aroma and taste.
  2. The sauce goes very well with steamed rice, prepare more if desired.
