Black Cod with Fermented Beans Over Sesame Noodles #FishFridayFoodies


It's time for Fish Friday Foodies' November event. 

In any case, we are a group of seafood-loving bloggers, rallied by Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm, to share fish and seafood recipes on the third Friday of the month.

This month, Karen of Karen's Kitchen Stories is hosting as we share stir-fries
. She wrote, "The theme for November is Stir-Fry. Create a stir-fry featuring seafood of any kind. If you don't have a wok, a good skillet will also work just fine."

Before I get to my recipe. Here's the rest of the #FishFridayFoodies' stir-fry menu...





Ingredients
  • 1 pound black cod, with skin still attached, cut into 1/4 lb portions
  • 6 baby leeks or 3 large leeks
  • 2 T cooking oil
  • 1 T chili bean paste
  • 1 t sweet bean paste
  • 1 T fermented black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 t soy sauce, divided
  • 1 t organic granulated sugar
  • noodles, cooked according to package direction
  • 2 t sesame oil
  • black sesame seeds for garnish, optional

Procedure
Cook the noodles. Drain and toss with 1 t soy sauce and 2 t sesame oil. Set aside.

Add the oil to a seasoned wok or other heavy pan and heat till sputtering. Stir in the chili bean paste and the sweet bean paste. Cook until the oil in the pan is red and fragrant. Stir in the black beans and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in the remaining soy sauce and sprinkle in the sugar. Stir to combine well then add in the sliced leeks. Stir-fry until the leeks are softened. Nestle the fish pieces in the sauce, cover and cook until the fish is opaque, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.

Season to taste with salt, if needed. I find I rarely add additional salt to dishes that include soy sauce. 

To serve, place noodles in individual bowls. Top with black cod. Spoon some of the cooked leeks over the top. Garnish with black sesame seeds, if using. Serve immediately.

  1. This sounds delicious Cam. I have my fermented black beans in the back of my fridge and love how they go from stinky to flavorful in a stir-fry!

  2. I have never tried fermented black beans...I think I will crawl out from that rock under which I live and find some.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
