Trevally in Asian Broth

Trevally in Asian Broth

Simply follow the steps below:

  1. In a pot stir together the broth ingredients and bring to the boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium and place the fish in the broth.  Simmer for about 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested.  Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your fillet.
  3. Transfer the fish into soup bowls and return the broth to the boil. Stir in the celery, red pepper and green onions. Cook for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Discard the ginger and lemon slices.
  4. Use a slotted spoon to serve the vegetables. Stir the sesame oil into the broth and pour into soup bowls. Garnish each dish with the grated carrot. ENJOY!
