Rockfish Ontop of Congee
It was fun thinking of what goes with my Rockfish, that is the Congree or Porridge. Cantonese called it "Jook". You can make your own flavor jook or just plain easily. Mine was watercress, sausage, chicken stock, green onions and of cos, jasmine rice. Why Jasmine Rice? Well, it is very smooth in texture, cooked fast and more aroma than the others. So the Rockfish I got from Costco is fresh and I seasoned it with olive oil, garlic salt and masala spice. Seared the Rockfish until cooked, say 4-5 minutes each side depends on how thick is the fillet. The thicker the longer in the hot saucepan (medium to high heat). The texture of the rockfish is flakey and white fish taste. I garnished with chopped fresh parsley. You can use cilantro or green onions or any other herbs you prefer. Well, try it and you sure will enjoy your jook time.
